Room to Grow

The SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive is a mobile storage device designed to help users free up space on their iPhone and iPad — now offering up to 256 GB of additional capacity. It features a flexible Lightning connector and a USB 3.0 connector so users can quickly and easily move photos and videos between their phone and tablet, and Mac or PC. The drive allows users to automatically back up their camera roll and content from social networking sites, and watch popular video formats straight from the drive via the iXpand Drive app. The drive also includes encryption software that password-protects files, letting people share their content while helping keep sensitive files protected across devices.

Rugged Workhorse

Panasonic announced the Toughbook CF-33, the company’s 3:2 aspect ratio, fully rugged 2-in-1 detachable laptop, powered by the latest-generation Intel Core vPro processor. The laptop also has a set of business interfaces with additional customizable options to meet a worker’s needs. Designed for outdoor use in bright sunlight or heavy rain, the Toughbook CF-33 has a 12-inch, 10-finger capacitive dual-touch QHD screen (2160 x 1440 pixels). The laptop comes with Intel i5-7300U, 8 GB RAM (4 GB and 16 GB project options) and 256 GB SSD (project options 128 GB and 512 GB).

Interactive Touch Monitors

Dell’s 55-inch and 86-inch 4K Interactive Touch Monitors (C5518QT and C8618QT) offer a touch display for collaboration with up to 20 touch points for classrooms and meeting rooms. New InGlass touch technology allows for a more natural writing experience with two (included) passive styluses, as well as anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass for easy viewing. Both monitors feature 4K UHD resolution and utilize monitor technology for clear text and images. The monitors can integrate a Dell OptiPlex Micro desktop within the back panel.
