Country Place Elementary Debuts New Cloud Terminals

To save costs on computers, secretaries and teachers at Country Place Elementary are now using terminals that access applications and files "in the cloud" (on the Internet) in lieu of using a hard drive. All of the contents of the device, including an optical drive, are contained in the flat-panel display.

Instead of replacing aging computers every 3 years, these terminals will likely only need replacing every decade, and come at a far smaller price point than a traditional computer.
