Republic of Macedonia

First Nation to Provide a Computer for Every Student


Deliver one computer per child to all of Macedonia’s 360,000 primary and secondary students for less than US $200 per seat.


Deploy 160,000 NComputing X-series access devices, connected to 20,000 desktop PCs running NC omputing virtualization software in order to deliver 180,000 student seats.


Two-year rollout across 430 schools enabled seven users to access a single computer simultaneously. Reduced long-term maintenance costs to a fraction of what they would have been if the country had purchased individual laptops for every child.

“NComputing offers significant cost advantages over individual PCs. It requires 90% less electricity to run and greatly reduces maintenance and replacement costs.”
