Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Wheel


Personally delivered HP All-In-One computers to 5 schools today. #edtech ln.is/ow.ly/i/hDQIa

We found ourselves a man short the day before a scheduled desktop delivery.  While others may have freaked out, I saw this as an opportunity to see my customers, check out the environment where the computers will be going, talk to the school techs, get out of the office, and get a little exercise.

Everything went without a hitch (pun intended).  By the way, these All-In-One computers were imaged, asset tagged, and green packaged for location delivery.  The customer was also given an electronic asset report by location.

It’s always fun bringing new technology to schools.

If you’re familiar with the HP Compaq 6000 Pro family, then you know you can select from a myriad of configurations and sizes for the desktop. In fact, the options are so great that if you hear of someone talking about a 6000 Pro, you’re going to have to ask more questions to understand exactly what they’re talking about, “…is it a micro-tower, a small form factor, the size of a toaster?” Ok, so they don’t make them the size of a toaster, but last June they did put the reliable 6000 Pro innards into the framework of an all-in-one PC.

It truly does meet the enterprise class expectations of reliability, security, manageability and stability already established by the HP 6000 series of machines.
