In today’s classroom landscape, laptops, chromebooks, and various tablets are a common educational tool. For a school that has its own technology that is distributed to students, a laptop cart is the best way to safely store and charge laptops. A laptop / chromebook cart should have a convenient way to store a number of devices and charge them simultaneously. The cart should be adequately ventilated because devices can overheat while charging. Student and teachers should be able to easily remove and replace laptops, and a good laptop cart locks securely and easy to move in the classroom or to other classrooms.
