Nor-Tech just unveiled high-quality, cost-conscious, simple-to-set-up AutoCAD PCs for the 2017 education buying season.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. , U.S., June 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nor-Tech, a leading provider of technology for schools, just unveiled high-quality, cost-conscious, simple-to-set-up AutoCAD PCs for the 2017 education buying season.
With millions of K-12 student users, AutoCAD is a world leader in multi-level design and engineering software. Using Nor-Tech desktops and AutoCAD, students learn the basics of CAD software such as creating points, lines, other geometric forms, isometric drawings, and 3D models and are able to create simple to complex engineering design solutions.
One educator that Nor-Tech works with said, “I went with Nor-Tech after getting quotes from several additional vendors and because of the overall value. From a customer service side, I was quite happy that they always got back to me in a timely fashion and were willing to answer questions. The systems were easy to install. The quality of the components is high, and the set-up was clean. I’m extremely pleased with the systems and with Nor-Tech.”
In addition to the processing power that CAD applications demand, there are other reasons that desktops still make sense in K-12 schools, these include:

  1. Cost: Desktops remain the price/performance leaders.
  2. Screen Size: The same disciplines, such as CAD, that require powerful processors require large computer screens in order to visualize progressive project details.
  3. The Keyboard: Full-sized keyboards with integrated number pads are much more efficient for engineering applications and even simple mathematics.
  4. Ergonomics: Because desktop components are unattached, the placement of the monitor and keyboard can be adjusted for each student.
  5. Upgrades: There are more upgrade options with a desktop.
  6. Repair-ability: It’s easy to open up a desktop and easy to see where the problem is.
  7. Sturdiness: They are less likely to get knocked off a table and much more likely to survive intact if they do.

Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig said, “Our focus on building high quality technology backed by industry-leading service applies to everything that leaves our facilitywhether it is desktops, workstations or high performance clusters.”
In addition to desktops, Nor-Tech offers a range of other technology for schools such as mobile laptop carts. These mobile laptop carts can be powered by a single standard AC outlet and have locking options available for extra safety and security. Other add-ons may include:
Single plug electrical operation with simultaneous battery charging
Extra energy efficiency features
Upgraded casters for easier maneuverability
Retractable power cords
Built-in intelligent charging solutions that can refresh more than 40 units from a single outlet.
A BatteryBay recharging drawer (for laptop batteries select models only)
A standalone PowerStation–for recharging optional all day Side-Kick battery PowerPacks, which eliminate dangerous cords running across the room.
