What kind of devices do we recommend for school?
If you are thinking of purchasing a device for your student, we recommend a Chromebook. There are many different brands and models (HP, Acer, Asus). Some Chromebooks have added features like touchscreens, larger monitors, and others can convert into a tablet. For your day-to-day low cost laptop, we are using the base model Acer Chromebook. The base model will typically run between $170 and $200 on Amazon. We have over 300 units and have been very pleased with their low breakage rate and high reliability.
While the chromebook will not play high end games, or store your entire music and photo library, it is perfect for accessing the EPS Google suite and using the internet. If you are looking for a simple straightforward device for doing homework, conducting research, watching videos online, this will cover nearly all your needs. You may want to look at other traditional laptops if you are into high end graphic design, video editing, or gaming.
