"Tech Data is pleased to offer our solution providers advanced education

is ideal for solution providers with education customers because it is
designed to significantly enhance student learning and includes the latest

resource-constrained schools, delivering value-added services like battery

Chromebook in order to increase the number of students who can get regular
access to technology and our effective online learning solutions. Like most

perfect solution for our needs."
