A Pair of Acers
Too many districts stock their schools with expensive PCs when a client server arrangement with minimalist thin clients would work better and save piles of cash. Acer’s Veriton N family can fit into any school’s IT landscape with thin systems that run Linux or Windows 7. All have Devon IT Echo management software to set up new clients and make instant changes throughout the district. The systems themselves are tiny, have processors ranging from TI’s DM8148 to Intel’s Celeron 887 and pricing starts at $239.
For conventional computing, few systems can match Acer’s Veriton 6620G family of desktops for performance and flexibility. In fact, you can order it any way you want, with basic configurations starting at $300 all the way up to high-performance Core i7 processors. You can get a small form factor case or a mini tower and order it with a wide variety of Intel processors. The common element is that they all come with 4GB of RAM, Windows 7 Professional and have a pair of DisplayPort and a single DVI output for a monitor or projector. The systems come with Acer’s ProShield Security software so that what goes into the Veriton stays there. All come with a three-year warranty.
