Home / About us


CTL has been quietly manufacturing high-quality Laptops, Desktop PC’s, Monitors and Servers since 1989 for select authorized accounts, with a strong focus in the education, local and federal government sectors. We have been recognized as one of Oregon’s fastest growing companies and were listed by the Business Journal as one of the Top Hardware Technology Companies in Portland.

CTL is one of a handful of system builders in the country that have been named both Microsoft OEM’s and Intel Technology Providers at the Platinum level. CTL is headquartered in Portland, Oregon. CTL’s PC manufacturing, sales, and support are all located in the United States, not in another country.

We Know 1:1

CTL has a strong history in education, dating back to our line of 2goPC Windows tablets, which were launched more than six years ago. Since then, we’ve expanded our scope to include a CTL line of Chromebooks and a whole host of 1:1 solutions for educators including pre-wired carts, custom logo painting, classroom management software and more. CTL has been awarded multiple 1:1 contracts such as the Nevada Ready 21 program, MLTI (Maine 1:1 Multistate Learning Technology Initiative), OETC (Organization for Educational Technology and Curriculum), TIPS/TAPS Cooperative Purchasing Systems, DigitalEdge and more. We also offer special pricing for qualified education customers and are happy to help schools customize a solution to best fit their needs. All CTL Chromebooks and 2goPC Windows devices meet the criteria for Smarter-Balanced testing.

We Know Chrome

With four Chromebook models designed specifically for education, CTL is quickly becoming recognized as the go-to source for Chromebook and Chrome-related solutions. Our CTL J2 Chromebook for Education was recently “Highly Rated” by PCMAG.com. “I’d recommend it as the best education-focused Chromebook we’ve seen,” said Brian Westover in his August 4, 2015 review.

Our CTL NL6 Education Chromebook was launched in June of 2014 and we were among the first to bring this Intel-designed ruggedized Chromebook to market. Unique features include reinforced ports and hinges, non-slip texture, fanless design, anti-peel keys and 180-degree rotating camera with an optional microscope lens.


We Know Our Customers

CTL consistently delivers best in class service to our customers. From pre-sales consultation to technical support and post-sales follow up CTL continually delivers the best TCO and world-class support to our customer base.

“Centennial School District has been working with CTL for a few years now on projects ranging from large-scale projector and Chromebook deployments to smaller, single classroom needs. Their customer service is top-notch. When I need a quote for a new order we get it the same day and usually within a few hours. For RMA’s their support team is quick, courteous, and always communicates well the status of ticket. CTL’s management does an excellent job reaching out to their K-12 customers for feedback and genuinely works with their customers to improve upon their products and service. I highly recommend CTL to anyone who is looking for great products, service, and competitive pricing.”

Executive Supervisor, Instructional Technology & Assessment, Centennial School District

Over the last year, CTL has been our source for student Chromebooks. Their price was right and still is.  The devices are packed expertly and arrive on schedule.  The Chromebooks were delivered as promised without issue.  We were never disappointed. Our sales rep, Mindy, couldn’t be more helpful.  She listened to our requests and bent over backwards to make us happy.  Quotes were timely and orders were processed immediately. I would highly recommend CTL as a technology vendor.”

“Working with CTL has been a great investment for the Hillsboro School District. CTL provides a great value for the pure hard costs of the technology we are wanting to deploy in our schools. And from my perspective, and equally as important, they excel at providing exceptional value in the soft costs of purchasing technology; time spent researching specs, value in added in providing support on fundamental design and deployment strategies, excellent working relationship. Working with CTL has been and continues to be a value added relationship for our district. I trust them and am able to count on them delivering what they commit to and when they commit to doing it.”
