Within the K12 market place – Netbooks have been gaining a lot of traction for 1 to 1 computing due to I believe pricing more than the technology itself. Netbooks have a place, but because of the processor and limited screen space – it’s not for everyone.
Districts have quickly discovered that Netbooks do not do well with online testing and for many students the small screen makes the unit less productive as you need to switch between screens rather than having both up and viewable.
This is where the SUB-NOTEBOOK can make a huge difference and many districts have taken advantage of this product with an INTEL processor (Pentium IV / Dual Core or Core 2 Duo) and 12.1 screen, standard hard drive etc. (Starting @ $237.00 with a 3 Year warranty)
Believe it or not two inches on the screen can make a huge difference in productivity. The processors will allow you to run anything on these systems, where Netbooks cannot.
Let me send out a DEMO unit to prove these systems are a better choice then Netbooks in a lot of installations. (K12 Customer only)
