Mecer Guru Pro & We Grow SA: Taking Online Learning to the Next Level
Staff Writer / 31-07-2020 / Review
In the age of social distancing and online education, students need flexibility now more than ever with a combination of the right hardware, affordable data, and access to the best e-learning portals.
With increasing rates of unemployment and school dropouts in South Africa, now is a crucial time to embrace alternative avenues to education and skills development while removing traditional barriers to entry. This is where the internet comes in.
For adults, access to online learning can mean upskilling themselves into a better job or a new career path following a retrenchment or even just to fulfill their passions. For school kids and students, it can mean bridging the gap between a formal education and skills that translate to the real world, as well as keeping up to date with online lessons and curricula while the debate over school openings continues to rage on in South Africa.
To open access to e-learning tools to as many South Africans as possible, Mondo has partnered with Vodacom to bring customers an affordable bundle that gives them everything they need to get going:
Flexible Hardware: The Mecer Guru Pro 2-in-1 Laptop and Tablet
The Mecer Guru 2-in-1 is a foldable laptop-tablet computer hybrid that runs on Windows 10 Pro. You get the power of a laptop PC and the portability of a tablet rolled into one, enabling students to access websites, email, video chats and e-learning materials on the go.
The incredible 13.3” display with HD webcam is perfect for watching videos or word processing and jotting down handwritten notes is easy as pie with the free Microsoft Ink Active stylus included in the package.
The Mecer Guru Pro runs on the powerful Intel Celeron Dual Core N3350 processor and features 64GB of onboard flash storage, expandable up to 128GB via the SD card slot, so you get plenty of memory to store documents, e-books, assignments and even your favourite music playlists and videos for when you need to take a break and chill out.
You also get 4GB RAM for a smooth user experience, as well as a huge 5000mAh battery that gives users up to 10 hours of video playback on a single charge, so you won’t have to search for a power outlet every few hours.
The Mecer Guru Pro 2-in-1 notebook delivers great performance in both laptop and tablet modes. At just 1.3kg, this slender powerhouse is light, durable and sleek enough to pack into any bag or backpack without taking up too much space or feeling like you’re carrying around a brick.
