ARES content can be accessed by any computing device that  includes a standard web browser and wireless connectivity. The  client devices that we recommend and have tested with include:


  • ​Chrome/Windows notebooks (11.6"): affordable, good battery, large screens, keyboard, physical cover/lid, portable.
  • ​Tablets: (Android, IPad): affordable, touch screen, good battery, portable.
  • ​Windows desktops (Windows 7/8/10): generally good monitor, keyboard, mouse for extended use.
  • ​Mobile devices: (Android, IPhone): portable, widely available.


In order to enable easy and reliable access to ARES content we can optionally provide high quality, low cost 11.6" Windows notebooks as part of the ARES system package. The pricing will depend on volume, but will generally range from $175 - $200 per device. The photo below is a sample notebook:






















  Projector

We highly recommend the purchase of a battery based projector for use in  situations where the teacher is using ARES for a classroom lecture. We have used a very reliable device from AAXA (Model P700). It can be ordered from Amazon.com and other suppliers for around $400 each (not including shipping.) More information can be provided as needed.
