Venturer BravoWIN 10KT Laptop Review…

Hawridge & Cholesbury School in Buckinghamshire were given a Venturer laptop to review adding it to their ICT suite and get road tested buy pupils and teachers.

Year 4 Pupil Comments:

s10k_r

  • We love the fact that it can be taken apart.
  • Because it can be a tablet it can be used like an iPad alongside other school iPads
  • It feels like a treat to use it at the desk because the design of the laptop (when it’s in one piece) makes it private.
  • Super easy to get on internet and play educational games.
  • When choosing options in games it’s easier to use touch screen than the keypad as it’s a bit fiddly to use and click.
  • We couldn’t use it for typing, editing or to use powerpoint which was a shame.

Year 6 Pupil Comments:

  • s_plotsThe computer can adjust its wifi settings swiftly and fix internet problems easily.
  • It has access to an App Store if you need to download key learning resources although it can’t play music.
  • It can become an iPad which is brilliant and is also touch screen.
  • The settings can be adjusted (although I haven’t changed anything) to whatever the circumstances may be and the internet responds quickly which I loved.

Comments By Teacher:

  • s10k_lIdeal key pad for smaller hands, kids got on really well with it.
  • Enjoyed using the laptop at the desk due to its compact size.
  • Felt really spoilt having a touch screen option and keyboard option to choose from, made using it so much easier.
  • Feels more substantial compared to the school iPads.
  • The on/off button is a little bit fiddly for bigger hands.
  • If laptop is inadvertently left unplugged in it doesn’t go into sleep mode so make sure you turn it off otherwise the battery is down next time you want to use it.
  • Would be great if there was a mouse that came as part of the package as when using it as a laptop it doesn’t feel easy to click on bottom left of bar.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
