Q: Chromebooks and Tough Chromebooks: The Tech Requirements list an 8GB/32GB configuration. Are you set on that specific combination?
A: These specifications reflect the minimum requirements in each category. If there is a combination that provides more than listed, that is ok as long as they are at or above the minimum listed.
Q: Chromebooks and Tough Chromebooks: Is an Intel chipset a requirement?
A: It is required within a vendor's base bid to provide pricing for the specifcations listed. If a vendor wishes to provide an alternate bid that would provide a high quality option for competitive pricing, that would be advantageous to the district, they may submit that for review as a separate response. The review committee will examine each bid separately and on its own merits.
Q: Chromebooks and Tough Chromebooks: Are dual USB-C ports a requirement? Is a single USB-C acceptable?
A: After further review, it has been determined that a Chromebook with a single USB-C port will be considered acceptable. However, devices with more than 1 USB-C port will be considered favorably as part of the overall specifications review.
Q: Windows Desktop: Are Discrete Graphics required? Are Integrated Graphics acceptable?
