Hardware

Returning TXVA Computer
it was better than what we had the two years ago, but we have since had to upgrade.
what we HAD:
3rd grade: Desktop:
=============================================
HP Compaq dc5850 Microtower PC
HP Compaq Business Desktop dc5850 - Sempron LE-1250 2.2 GHz RAM 1 GB - HDD 1 x 80 GB - DVD - Radeon 3100 - Gigabit Ethernet - Vista Business / XP Pro
=============================================
and what we upgraded to this year out of our own budget
4th grade Desktop:
HP Pavilion Slimline s5670t CTO with Intel
  • Intel Core i3-540 dual core processor
  • 512 MB ATI Video
  • 4 GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM
  • 750GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • Lightscribe 16x DVD
and this will work for a stationary desktop.
=============================================
BUT
=============================================
we really need portability (gone 26 weeks out of the year) sooooo with that in mind we just ordered:
hybrid: larger and more powerful than a netbook, smaller and more portable than a laptop:
5th grade: HP Pavilion dm1z series

- 11.6" diagonal High Definition HP BrightView
- Weight 3.52 lbs
- AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache)+AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6310M
- 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
- 128GB (Solid State Drive Flash Module)(much more durable if dropped)
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
