All you need is your id to use one of our tablets for the block.

Some of you may have seen our new offerings already, but for the rest of you, here’s what we’ve got:

Google Chrome Book – works like a laptop but runs Google Chrome and its extensions only.  Great for online research, and writing papers, especially if you are used to Google Drive.

Kindle Fire HD –  A 7in tablet with a dazzling display.  Boasts a 35% faster download speed than the iPad mini.

iPad with Retina Display (x2) – the latest and greatest from the iPad family boasts a large screen and a dazzling display.  Pair it with our bluetooth keyboard to speed up your typing.  When it comes to working on the iPad, once again, Google Drive is the place to go.

iPad Mini  (x4)- with all the same apps but a smaller form factor, the mini makes it easy to work on the go.  It is light enough to hold in one hand without resting on anything and therefore is a truly portable option

Samsung Tab 2 – an android device that is geared towards productivity.

Coming Soon – the Nexus 7
