Customer Stories - Parent


Julie says: “The Acer Spin 5 has really impressed us. It’s light to carry, which is great for when my children need to go to and from school or university. Our favourite feature of the Acer Spin 5 is the convertible flip design. It looks really sleek. You can use it as a notebook or tablet in a matter of seconds, which is really handy for when my children are using it for interactive work or watching videos. It’s powerful, there’s plenty of memory for their work and it’s got a long enough battery-life to last the school or university day. Windows 10 means there are loads of tools on hand to get the job done… It’s also affordable which helps!”

Portable Monitor

Julie says: "One of my children uses the ZenScreen secondary monitor at university for dual-monitor presentations – they look superb on the Full HD panel. The colours are outstanding, no matter what angle you’re viewing it from. All you need is a single USB connector cable for it to work with almost any laptop. When travelling between lectures, the monitor sits within a foldable smart case that can protect it from bumps and scratches. I like the Ultra-Low Blue Light feature that protects my child’s eyes from harmful blue light – it’s really intelligent technology.””

NAS for Home

Julie says: "Network Attached Storage (NAS) has been really great for our home media storage. It’s powerful, yet affordable. My children are always sharing data files or streaming content – NAS allows everything to be shared over the ‘cloud’. It doesn’t even matter if you have a Mac or Windows device, you can back up all your files directly to the NAS. It also has extremely low power consumption which keeps costs low. More importantly, built-in security tools are constantly updated to protect my children’s devices and data against potential threats."

Office 365 - Home

Julie says: "Office 365 has amazing features like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook - my children are productive and able to get their work done on time, in a professional way. Office 365 is great for group projects, as different users can edit the same file from different devices. Office 365 tools have help prepare my children for presentation-giving, essay writing, note taking, and there's even extra cloud storage for all their work. The Home subscription is great for any family and can be installed on 5 PCs or Macs. As a parent I recommend Office 365 because, not only does it help my children with their work, it's still used every day in many jobs worldwide."

USB Flash Drive

Julie says: “The lightweight USB flash drive is a great companion for school and university students. The fast performance ensures seamless transfer of word files, music, video and more which is great for school or university work – especially when my children are presenting to their class or seminar. Having a storage solution so compact is easy to transport from one class to another and conveniently works with Windows and Mac devices. 64GB allows enough space for them to save their work, and access it quickly and easily.”
