Notebooks on a Roll
The latest in making school computers more mobile is Dell’s Mobile Computing Cart, which can hold up to 30 14-inch systems. It’s only slightly larger than a classroom desk and despite weighing nearly 200-pounds, has a handle that makes it easy to roll from room to room. It has power built-in so that when they’re not being used, the systems can be charging as well as remain connected with optional wired networking. And, when the last bell rings, the cart can be locked up. The cart sells for between $1,900 and $2,800.
