New or refurbished, purely for student use to write CVs and give a presentation – so office suite capable.
Anyone seen any banging bargains? Anyone work in IT looking to move a load of ex staff laptops?
For that level of use – Chromebooks? Would probably be the cheapest route to entry but depends on what is a very low budget
£200 a pop ballpark. Id thought about Chromebooks, but were all office 365 based etc etc.
Could be worth giving http://www.nsoptimum.co.uk/ a quick phone call. We used them quite a lot when I was @ IT helpdesk in a past life they’re a great company
Contact Dell or HP Enterprise and explain your need and purpose. You may be quite surprised what they can offer. For instance, I can tell you that our buy price for HP equipment is less than 50% of the website cost.
Microsoft offer discounted devices for Students and School kids. They’ve got some really basic ones for £185.
Failing that, Laptops Direct have loads of refurbs in stock.
They may be able to help
SIMMS / MyDigitalTech would be worth a shout.
They do a lot of refurb’d machines and very likely to be able to get their hands on that sort of level of stock (they’re massive).
Cheers all, reached out to all those suggested, Circular were certainly on the ball MT
