The latest version of the HP All-in-one computers that we use for student computer labs has had a major redesign of the mounting system, however there was no mention of this on their website. This has meant that the new computers for certain rooms that use 'flip-top' desks can't currently be folded away when not in use. The project manager is looking at possible solutions to this and will deal with it as part of the upgrading of computers project for 23/24.
