Attention Public Sector Purchasers: Are You Looking for an EPEAT Certified Notebook?

CTL W130 EPEAT Notebook

The CTL® W130 Notebook is Powerful, Budget Friendly and EPEAT Certified!

Why should public sector purchasers buy EPEAT certified products? Some agencies may require this, but there are also many good reasons to purchase a laptop, desktop or monitor that has earned the EPEAT certification. All EPEAT certified products have met the challenging criteria put forth by the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool, an efficient and credible means to verify that the equipment has a minimal environmental impact. Products are evaluated on 51 environmental criteria and ranked according to performance on a Gold, Silver or Bronze level. EPEAT is a purchasing requirement for all US Federal Agencies and is integrated into hundreds of government, education, health care and enterprise IT contracts worldwide.

CTL®’s 13.3’’ W130 Notebook is a great solution if you need an EPEAT certified notebook that’s powerful, budget friendly and carries the more difficult to obtain Silver rating. But just because the W130 is good for the environment, you won’t have to compromise power, portability or performance! Read on to find out how this notebook is an asset to any public sector office.

Public sector employees such as police, transit, education or healthcare workers lead fast paced lives. The last thing you need is to be slowed down by a weak processor. Fortunately, the W130 comes with the powerful 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i-3 processor, but if you want even more you can easily upgrade to the beefier i-5 or i-7. The W130 is a Business Class Notebook, designed for professionals of all types. You can count on this notebook to make it easy to move through multiple software applications without missing a beat.

Many public sector employees spend just as much time, if not more, away from their desks. Weighing less than 4 pounds, with a width of only 1.3’’, the W130 notebook is ultra-mobile. It easily fits in a backpack or small computer bag and has a battery life of over 5 hours for typical usage. All your work and communications can go wherever you go, making it easy to work from anywhere. With a built-in Intel wireless adaptor, it will be no problem to get online and access the information you need. Then, when you’re back at your desk, you can use the optional DS200 Dock to easily connect to printers and other peripherals with one snap.

The W130 is built to perform. This netbook is easy to upgrade and offers a lot of options so it can be customized to help you work at maximum efficiency. It comes with a pretty good sized hard drive at 320GB, but you can go all the way up to 1TB if need be. You can also choose an SSD hard drive, which is less susceptible to data loss due to physical shock and runs much more quietly than standard SATA drives. You’ll get an ample amount of RAM with 4GB standard, but it’s easy to upgrade to 8GB. When it comes to an operating system, choose between Windows 7 and 8, which is available in the Home Premium or Professional versions.

If you think shopping EPEAT means compromising quality, think again! The W130 is a business class notebook that is competitive in its pricing, specs and versatility. It just happens to be a great choice for the planet as well. To learn more about the CTL® W130 EPEAT notebook for public sector, contact your sales rep, or call us today at 1-800-642-3087.
