It is estimated that over 80% of a home inspector’s clients are now requesting on-site reports. Home inspection software has made it easier than ever to create accurate and detailed computerized reports that can be explained to homeowners on the spot. Inspectors are searching for computers that are ultra-mobile, powerful, and rugged. But they also need versatility. Sometimes a tablet is needed to quickly jot notes using a pen-shaped stylus, yet a computer with a keyboard is ideal for completing and typing reports. And above all, a lightweight, durable, and high-quality computer at a good value is a must.
Enter the 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL2 Pro 10” Netbook by CTL. The newest in the Convertible Classmate PC line, this 10” computer features a rotating screen that when flat, functions as a tablet, and when turned upwards reveals a keyboard and becomes a netbook. Its’ ruggedized design makes this 2go PC tough enough for a home inspector to take into the field without worry. It features a shock-mounted scratch- and water-resistant LCD screen, spill-resistant keyboard and touchpad, reinforced corners, and an easy-to- hold protective rubberized case with a retractable handle. A sensor shuts down the hard drive to prevent damage in the event of a fall.
