Sorry for the confusion. The printer can print in landscape mode, but it cant print 8.5 x 11-inch documents the short way (along the 8.5-inch side) to reduce printing time. Like other printers it prints an 8.5 x 11-inch sheet the 11-inch along its 11-inch length. This is a feature on most 11 x 17 printers to reduce the printing time on standard documents. In fact, Epsons new production printers can do this. hope that helps, bn

The Suite does support Macs and PCs, but it is old and hasn't been updated recently. The Notebook software is newer and can do much the same thing. Smart's next step is Ampe, Smart's online system, whcih should be available in teh month month: http://blogs.scholastic.com/techtools/2014/01/amped-up.html BN

You are correct and I apologize for the error. The T100 indeed does have a TPM module built in and can connect with a WiDi device. Thanks for your thorough reading, and let me know if you need anything in the future. bn.

On top of using the latest and fastest processor, the Android-powered M532 has a bigger screen, compared to an iPad and costs less for similar hardware. Plus, it's lighter. bn

The overall winner was the Epson BrightLink 485 with very good imaging, good interactivity and reasonable expenses, but the feature that seals the deal is that you don't need a computer connected to use it. That way, it works well with images, video or a Web site via a connected computer, but is just as good on its own as the equivalent of an electronic blackboard. bn

It has a lot of good advice for young writers, but I have to question their business writing essays and papers for students. bn

You caught me. Yes, the PXL vs. PWL problem is due to typos. I wish I could go back to the day when I had a copy editor or two to proof my work, but this is the age of the Web, which doesn't allow a safety net. As to power use, these are readings that I did myself. Yes, the monitor has a 50 watt spec, but in actual use it uses 34- and 24-watts in regular and Eco modes. Does this help? bn

These are secondary monitors that get their data and power from a USB cable. It's very convenient and easy to set up so that it makes a lot of sense in the classroom. bn

That seems about right. The typical access point or router can handle two, maybe three classrooms, but that can be stretching it if the walls are thick and dense (which absorbs some of the signal). The beauty of these extenders is that they don't need a wired connection to the network to work. bn

Agreed. I connected it with Ethernet to my office's network and it picked up the signal (and printed) fine. Some older schools don't have the luxury of wired networking everywhere so having built-in WiFi is a big deal. bn
