Lightweight, compact, and easy to move, the new Bretford Mobility Cart for MacBook and iPad allows you to store, secure, charge, and transport any combination of Apple notebook computers and iPad devices from classroom to classroom. The Apple-exclusive Bretford Mobility Cart includes compartments that can hold any size Apple notebook computer or iPad (computers and iPad devices sold separately), features a new power management system, is 20 percent smaller, and includes new directional locking swivel casters which makes it easier to move from classroom to classroom.
The all new Power Management System, located on top of the cart, features a charge indicator light, which glows orange when charging, and turns to green when all your MacBook and iPad devices are charged. Two charging modes give you the ability to properly charge the entire cart, or with the touch of a button, apply a rapid charge to just the first ten devices. Smarter charging cycles focuses charging power on the devices that need it most, letting your charged devices stay cool, extending battery life, and saving on energy costs.
Cables without clutter
The new Mobility Cart features doors in front and back, with separate programmable combination locks for each, allowing power adapters (not included) to be secured separately from the devices. This design creates a cleaner and more secure solution. Laser-cut numbers and an all-new cable management slide-lock in the front help keep devices and power cords in the right slot, while matching laser-cut numbers in the back keep your devices connected to the appropriate power adapter. Custom-fit power adapter slots accommodate all models of MagSafe power adapters, as well as the iPad USB power adapter.
More power, less wiring
On top of the cart is a convenient electrical outlet suitable for powering a printer or other shared peripheral. Inside the cart is a 1-amp, always-on outlet, intended for a wireless access point. And thanks to the intelligent Power Management System, the entire cart runs from a single power cord.
Easier to maneuver
One of Bretford's goals in this redesign was to make the cart easier to move around the classroom and campus. They did this by reducing the size by 20 percent, and by adding all new locking swivel casters. Two casters swivel and lock to keep the cart in place, while the other two can swivel, or by flipping an easy toe-tab, lock straight for long trips across the building. These all-new casters have passed rigorous cycle testing, passing through a typical school double-door threshold 10,000 times without failing.

Not as durable as past models
I work at a school and have 3 carts for our laptops. Everything seems fine except the door latches. After one year the front lat ch became loose and the poles that secure the doors kept falling out of place (there is no way to secure the doors closed). You can use a padlock to keep the two doors together, but you can still pull the doors away from the cart and reach inside. I switched the front and back doors since we don't really need to get into the back door and the same thing happened to this door within 6 months. Now the door mechanism is so loose it seems like it will fall off. Tried to get replacement doors but were unsuccessful. I can't recommend this product as a secure storage solution.. Model number:TX323LL/A …

Favorite Bretford Product!
As a fourth grade teacher, this is my favorite Bretford product at our school. Previously, I had to alter my lesson plans and sche dule around the computer lab's schedule which was inconvenient and unfortunately, not always possible. However, once our school purchased 3 of these, not only has that freed up time slots at the computer lab, but now, we're able to bring laptops into our classroom at our chosen time. This has allowed us to do several projects that we would have otherwise been unable to do and in addition, it has allowed our students to connect globally with other students! …
