The educator laptop model is an excellent blend of functionality and performance. It is light enough to be mobile, yet with a decent sized screen and all of the ports your need to connect to TEC Packages and home printers, etc. The battery life is great, it has a fast solid-state harddrive, quick processor, and lots of system memory for all of those browser tabs we have open while we work.
The Educator Laptops are Hewlett Packard ProBook 430 G3, they have a fast modern processor (i3 – 6th Gen) that is capable of running today’s demanding applications.
These days, we run many browser tabs and applications at the same time so these laptops were equipped with plenty of memory (8GB RAM)..
Conserving power and speeding up file access, these laptops were equipped with 128GB Solid State Drives (SSD) so fast boot up and no more pauses while the hard drive “wakes up”.
In addition these laptops are equipped with a long life 6 cell battery.
