A number of our customers have asked us for ways to get more out of their 1:1 device investment, particularly since students will be using these at home as well as in class and at school.
The good news: all of the devices we feature (and others we may custom order), are versatile and powerful enough to do most anything.
That said, if you want to enhance the system at home, here are some ideas:
External Monitor: All of the systems we offer have the ability to connect to a second monitor, most with a simple HDMI cable. Doing so, gives you a larger screen and more space to run multiple browser windows and apps.
- Wireless Keyboard and/or Mouse: For a relatively low cost, you can add a full size keyboard and/or a mouse.
- Headset with Microphone: A headset with microphone makes it easier to use the audio and video conferencing, and offers a bit of privacy. Depending on the device, you can use a headset with a USB connector or a mini-plug.
- Chromecast: This $39 device let's you broadcast wirelessly from your Chromebook or Laptop to any TV or monitor using your home WiFi network.
None of these accessories are necessary, but they can make the working environment at home more enjoyable and productive.
