6 6 How is this cart different from a desktop? Each laptop runs on one or two batteries *Two Battery units do not have the CD player attached but you can remove a battery and add the CD player Its connected to the network via wireless network cards It must be recharged regularly You arent tethered to a table when youre using the computer Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

7 7 Parts of the Laptop Cart Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

8 8 Locks You need both keys in the locks to unlock and open the door Be sure to lock the cart and keep the keys on your person after distributing laptops Lock the cart and remove the keys when the laptops arent being used Do not move carts with keys in locks Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

9 9 Power The main power cord from the cart should be connected at all times. Each laptop has a power supply which attaches to the laptop via a thin cable with the connector. Another cable plugs into the power strip inside the cart. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO PINCH EITHER OF THESE CABLES IN THE CART DOORS. Be sure to turn the cart off (red button on back of cart) before unplugging it from the wall. Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

10 10 Batteries (2 battery units) Batteries are located on the underside of the laptop with the releases shown in the figure below You should not need to remove a battery except to swap-out the right battery for the CD Rom when you wish to use a CD in some older mobile carts Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

11 11 Swap out drives (2 battery units) The CD Rom resides in the right hand battery port when you need to use a CD The laptop with only one battery will not run nearly as long as it will with two batteries Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

12 12 Screens Each laptop has a flat screen THAT SHOULD NOT BE TOUCHED. Use only a small amount of rubbing alcohol, like what is used for eyeglasses. The caution is to make sure that the cloth is not soaked and that liquid gets into the keyboard, it will destroy the laptop. If you want to clean the keyboard, please use a cloth and do not spray directly on top the keyboard as you will destroy the computer. Do not spray the screen, the keyboard or any other part of the computer, always make sure your cloth is damp and then you clean the computer. When in doubt, check with the manufacturer!

13 13 Printers The laser printer on the cart is black and white only. Schools should create a printer use policy. Schools are responsible for replacing the toner cartridge in the printer. Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

14 14 Wireless Hub The wireless hub maintains contact with each wireless laptop only in the schools that do not have wireless throughout the building. The closer it is to the laptop, the signal will be stronger. Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability

15 15 What is the signal range? About 200 with no obstacles in the way. If you have heavy furniture, room dividers or other barriers in the room, signal strength will be compromised. Created 3/23/06 Revised 6/2/2010 Office of Information, Technology and Accountability
