The Alphasmart Neo 2 from Renaissance Learning is easy to use, lightweight, and affordable — designed to provide a wide range of computing capability on its own, and to integrate effortlessly with desktop and laptop computers. Like the popular AlphaSmart 3000, Neo offers a full-sized keyboard and extraordinary battery life, but adds a 50% larger display and twice as much memory. Neo is an ideal solution for maximizing classroom computer resources.
Reconditioned units may have minor signs of wear, labels, or other markings which do not affect their usability. They have been thoroughly cleaned and tested and are warrantied for 1 year. They have been updated to include the latest operating system and come with batteries and USB cable.
The Neo 2 includes all of the great features educators have grown to love about the original Neo by AlphaSmart. Its new features make it even better for classroom use, including:
- Integration with Accelerated Reader—allows students to use Neo 2 to answer AR quiz questions and submit responses to Renaissance Place for evaluation.
- Supports the 2Know! Toolbar—allows teachers to graph responses to on-the-fly, specific-answer, and short-answer quizzes.
- Wireless Printing so students can print documents without leaving their desks (receiver required).
The reconditioned Neo 2 is the standard (non-rechargeable) version that operates with alkaline batteries.
