Notebook VS Laptop Rental
You may call it a notebook or you may refer to it as a laptop, but there are some subtle differences between the two. A laptop computer, or simply laptop, is a portable computer, which typically weighs 4-8 pounds depending on the size of its display (screen). A notebook on the other hand usually forgoes some functionality to remain lightweight and small. They typically weigh less than five pounds are the size of an actual notebook. Over the course of time these two terms have become more interchangeable as the technology within them becomes more similar. Both options provide portable computing power that can handle almost all business and pleasure usages. If you take a look “under the hood” you will find more hard drive capacity and Random Access Memory in laptops than you will in notebooks, but the latter is smaller and lighter and therefore easier to keep on you at all times in a backpack or briefcase. As mentioned previously though, the lines continue to blur between them with technical specs and also as people become familiar using one term over the other. MCR carries numerous options for your renting purposes, with both PC and Mac models available. Many people have opted to use these as their primary computer over desktop models as computing power has increased and size of parts decreased. The need for CD and DVD drives has diminished with the rise of digital media and data compression, which has also given laptops and notebooks a leg up on their stationary predecessors. The rise of tablets has in turn taken some of the market share from portable computers, but there are still many advantages to them including storage space and solid state drives. A laptop or notebook today has hundreds of times more computing power than they did ten years ago. Some of the specifications to consider when renting them include size and resolution of the display screen. If you are using them for surveys or Microsoft office, then there’s no real need for a 17” screen but if it’s being used for presentations, videos or graphics, then a larger screen would fit the bill nicely. Another thing to consider is the keyboard, which is usually full size on a laptop and condensed on a notebook. There is also battery life considerations, laptops generally have bigger batteries and last longer in-between charges. If you are looking for an option which bridges the gap between function and size, then a Macbook air is a fantastic option. They are lightweight, have great battery life, offer full keyboards and can handle anything you can throw at them with computing power. If you would like expert advise on which model is best for your needs, please inquire with our staff who will recommend the right product for your needs.
Office Training Rental
Using a notebook or laptop for office training is one of the most common applications we see. If your company or school needs specific training done on web based platforms and there aren’t enough computers to go around, then renting them for short or long-term training is an excellent solution. Our staff will walk you through the process and help set them up so that they work exactly as you need them to. Renting laptops or notebooks to get staff up to date on new software or to train them on required courses is easy and quick with MCR. Our team will prep the computers to serve whatever needs you have and we can install programs that can be accessed later on personal devices. Using portable computers for classroom training is another common use and doesn’t require nearly as much space that desktop computers do. If the trainees have to move from station to station or are moving from workbenches to desks, then laptops are perfect. The options available aren’t limited to PC either, if your staff typically use Mac-based operating systems then we have a range of MacBook Air’s and Pro’s. If you run a corporate training firm or a staffing company that has a large need for additional computers, renting laptops or notebooks is a perfect solution. Our support staff will work with you to make sure your training runs smoothly and won’t let issues with technology bog down the learning process. There is nothing more frustrating than having equipment that doesn’t work they way you want it to, and we will make sure that it doesn’t happen during your training. If you have questions about what we can facilitate please speak with our team of experienced experts and we’ll discuss what will work best for your needs.
Preferred Option to Desktops Rental
There are numerous advantages to renting laptops over desktops for your needs. Notebooks and laptops are portable and lightweight which reduce the amount of space needed to do training and they greatly reduce the amount of equipment needed for setup. You can use a laptop or notebook anywhere, in a classroom, office or conference hall, which means more people can be learning or working in the same space. Instead of having cords for power, monitors, keyboards and mice, you have one power supply and the rest can be run off USB easily and quickly. The computing power of a modern laptop rivals the majority of desktops being used in the workplace currently, which results in equal performance in a smaller and sleeker package. If you need to train staff on new software or have mandatory training in a setting that doesn’t typically require computers, then renting laptops for short or long term use is ideal. Our team will set your company, school or conference up with laptops/notebooks that function the same and have preloaded programs or web-based applications ready to go. The amount of time and hassle you will save by renting from MCR will drastically reduce the stress and setup strain on your staff or school. Asking people to bring their own device can be a nightmare of incompatibility and technical headaches. It’s far easier to have the same devices with the same training systems pre-loaded than it is to have some people trying on PC, some on Mac, and some on tablets. There’s simply too many variables if they bring their own devices and some of the users may not have access to a suitable option. If you want to ask questions or have concerns please reach out to our expert team of technicians and sales associates that have decades of experience in facilitating technology rentals for your needs.
Taking Your Event to the Next Level
There are obvious things you should rent when setting up a venue for an event but there are numerous products that MCR offers which can take it to the next level. If you are going to have a projector setup and/or LED screens then you’ll want to have an audio component that can compete with the size and background noise in the room. Many events have a need to play music and venues often have nothing suitable to play it with. We can set up a sound system to handle any music and presentation needs. Along with audio and visual components you might want to have a microphone and mixing board for live presentations. If the venue has no formal stage then renting a stage with the dressing to make it look good is another avenue to consider. Having a stage is a great way to take your event to the next level and you can also set up lighting to feature a spotlight on the stage and presenter. If there is any information you would like to collect from people visiting the event or if there’s a contest that you want to run, consider renting iPads on stands which can be set up with web or applications to serve your needs. All of these suggestions can make your event look more professional and we are here to make sure it all runs properly. The MCR team provides on-site service to set it up, take it down and make sure it operates properly. A team of experts taking care of the common headaches associated with technology saves you time and stress while you prepare for the big day.
