Devices in Education: Senior Managers and IT Professionals

In our final day of Devices in Education themed posts, we are going to look at the devices best suited for IT Pro’s and Senior Management working within schools, colleges and universities.

It may seem strange for us to group senior managers and IT pros into one section, but there is reason behind the seeming madness. While these two groups consume different content on their PCs, their requirements are actually quite similar. In their roles, they both need devices with high performance, professional looks and ample storage.




3 excellent devices for Senior Manager and IT professionals include the following range of Tablets, All-in-One’s and Ultrabook’s:

All-in-One (Mid Range): HP Envy 23-d010ea

The Envy’s 3rd generation Intel® processor provides a fast processing speed which gives all the performance that senior managers and IT pros need. Its structure is smart, with edge-to-edge glass design, but doesn’t compromise performance, and you can even mount it on the wall. With the 10-point touch sensitive screen, you can introduce a truly hands-on approach to leadership meetings, or get your team of IT technicians involved in the solution planning process.

Tablet (High End): Surface Pro

With the ability to run all the apps and programs you care about, digital ink capabilities and the option to join a corporate domain for full access to your institutions network, we think the Surface Pro is the perfect choice for senior management and IT professionals within academic institutions.


Ultrabook (High End): Lenovo X1 Carbon

Another visually stunning device, the Lenovo X1 Carbon has everything you could ask for, and more. The long battery life allows you to stay unplugged all day, so if you’re walking around the school offering support, or in and out of meetings, you can rest assured that your laptop will last as long as you do. The Intel® vPro technology enables you to manage, protect, repair, and locate assets from anywhere in the world, which we know is important to those leading the school and staff. Being on the move can leave you with little time to charge your device, but with Lenovo’s rapid charge technology charging the battery up to 80% in 35 minutes, you needn’t worry about those busy days out of your office.
