Schools are finding that desktops are still the most powerful, versatile and cost-effective options for both labs and classrooms.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
Ace Computers just announced they will be showcasing custom desktops at a series of education shows in the next two months. This is part on an ongoing campaign to accommodate the resurgence of desktops in the classroom.
The primary reason for this trend is that desktops perform better than mobile devices in many areas including: reduced cost, more processing power, larger screen size, better keyboard ergonomics, ease of upgrading and repairing, sturdiness and reliability.
Ace Computers CEO John Samborski said, “Schools are finding that desktops are still the most powerful, versatile and cost-effective options for both labs and classrooms. Laptops and tablets don’t eliminate the need for desktops. Educators and administrators know that a mix of technology promotes an optimal learning environment.”
Ace Computers has been building desktops designed specifically for the pre-k through post-grad education environment for more than 30 years; they are experts in the education procurement process.
The Coordinator of Network Operations for a district that has ordered over 2,300 desktops and servers from Ace Computers over the last five years, said, “Being in the educational field we need to do everything that we can to maintain cost. Ace Computers has worked with us to keep the cost of computer systems down while still maintaining a high level of quality. Because of this I have recommended Ace Computers to others and will continue to recommend them.”
At the shows, Ace Computers experts will demonstrate the capabilities and advantages of their desktops and other education-related technology. They will also be available for consultations and brainstorming. Following is a list of upcoming Feb. and March education shows that Ace Computers will be attending:
