The Computing Center will be participating in the 25th Annual Education Technology Day at Ithaca College on Thursday, March 19th. We will be working with our friends from Hewlett Packard showing their latest tablets, notebooks and computer systems.
Ed Tech Day is a regional technology event that attracts over 1,600 people annually from the upstate New York region. National manufacturers will be in attendance including Adobe Systems, Apple, Dell, Epson, Hewlett Packard, and Microsoft.
While one of the primary audiences for the event is the higher education community, the event is open to everyone. There is plenty of information that is of interest to K-12 education, the business and not-for-profit communities. At the event you'll be able to talk directly with representatives from major computer and technology manufactuerers and suppliers, explore educational applications, learn how technology is being used today in and outside of higher education and see what can be expected in the coming years.
The 2015 show will take place on Thursday, March 19, 2015, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Emerson Suites and adjoining areas of the Campus Center at Ithaca College. The show features a Vendor Technology Showcase, a College Showcase, and a series of seminars.
Desktop PCs aren't dead. They play significant roles in most of our businesses and organizations. Although written from a Hewlett Packard point of view, this article's message is relevant regardless of the brand of equipment in use.
In today’s era of notebooks, tablets, and smartphones, mobility is a high priority—making small businesses more dynamic and responsive in an on-the-go world.
That reality, however, should not detract from the important role desktop PCs still play in today’s business environment, delivering more power, more robust upgrade options, and more functionality compared to their portable counterparts.
While large enterprises typically refresh their desktop PCs once every three years, small businesses tend to hold on to their PCs for five to seven years . Older hardware, however, often slows operations and sparks hidden costs. In fact, PCs more than four-and-a-half years old are estimated to cost 50 percent more to support and take 50 percent longer to perform many tasks .
