Samsung Galaxy Tab A7: Tablets can be thought of as small, handheld computers. They’re smaller than a laptop, but larger than a smartphone. The tablets available for checkout are Wi-Fi enabled, which means that no external internet connection is necessary to access the internet on these devices. You can also connect other devices to this tablet’s Wi-Fi.
T9 Mobile Hotspot: A mobile hotspot, otherwise known as a personal hotspot, is a device that lets users connect to the internet by acting as a localized Wi-Fi network.
Lenovo 100e (Gen 3) LTE Chromebook: Chromebooks are portable computers that are Wi-Fi enabled, meaning you do not need an external internet connection to access the internet on these devices. You can use a Chromebook to do almost anything you’d normally do online: read websites, check email, watch online videos, and so on. Chromebooks are cloud-based, meaning the device uses the internet to run its programs.
