"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

20- and 30-unit Intelligent Laptop Computer carts incorporate a power management system, or “brain.” The brain protects and preserves the life of the laptops by redistributing power every three minutes. It also senses when the laptop batteries are almost charged, then automatically decreases power, extending battery life and saving energy.

QUALITY AND EFFECTIVENESS: The cart body is built primarily of steel components and is solid and stable. The doors fold out 270 degrees to offer complete access to the computers housed inside. One of the more innovative features on the cart is its cord management system, called the Cable Clutter Closet. The main feature of the LAP20ULH-CT cart is the power management system. Called the “brain” by Bretford, this system intelligently and effectively charges notebook batteries.

EASE OF USE: While Bretford has certainly done an admirable job of making transportation easier with the LAP20ULH-CT, it is never an easy task to move 500 pounds of equipment. It will also be difficult for most users not to end up kneeling on the ground when loading the bottom row of computers in the 20-cart model. While the power management system is innovative, there remains a learning curve to understanding all the features and the operation of the “brain.”

SUITABILITY FOR USE IN A SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT: While there is little doubt the cart would be effective in housing, charging, and transporting laptops, schools should still consider the overall price and the long-term implications for the cart. Bretford offers a 12-year warranty for the cart body and a oneyear warranty for the electronic components. The Bretford representatives were confident that the “brain” would last many years, but should the unit fail after one year, the cart top would have to be replaced at a cost of $395. The LAP20ULH-CT is also listed at roughly $200 over the cost of the next cart in Bretfords line, and both these costs should be figured into total cost of ownership.

OVERALL RATING: The LAP20ULH-CT Intelligent Laptop Cart by Bretford is an extremely well-made, well-designed machine. Its power management system is an excellent innovation, and all the little touches present in the design make this a five-out-of-five-rated product. The only areas of concern are the cost of the unit and the potential complications of the power management controllers failing, although the cost of replacing the head unit is not exorbitant. Overall, the addition of this unit is likely to be welcomed by teachers and technicians alike.
