Evergreens - discontinued and custom order products

 

What's cutting edge today might be obsolete tomorrow. All reasonably well designed products leave a mark though and are essential in the neverending evolution of technology. The Education Wins (Edwin) Foundation will continue to improve the Cherrypal "good enough" design principles and provide our customers with the best possible product for the lowest possible price.

Below the products that were "stars" when they were introduced to the market, today they are considered "outdated", some, like the C114/120 desktop computer are "evergreens" and still availabe for special custom orders.
