Having worked with
Buy from specific vendors who had a contract (so no amazon/newegg options)
Only buy specific products (ex: GSA merchandise)
Fill everything out in triplicate by hand and wait for signed approval (taking weeks)
Specify the cost center for purchase and pray that there's money in the budget or wait for someone to determine whether something like a HD truly is office vs maintenance vs misc equipment
Why all of these hoops? Ultimately to have "transparency" in our purchases so when an external entity comes in and looks at the accounting books our collective asses are covered because we purchased from a contract retailer instead of bobs-hard-drives.com.
For what it's worth, the purchase order for that XP machine with the 80gb drive was probably initially submitted when that was a "normal" size

I'm tired of the pro-tech (sales monkeys) people acting as though a kids development will be hampered by them being exposed to fundamental tools like chalk, paper, pencils, etc. On one hand they boast about how simple to use tech is these days that even a 3 year old can use it. Then they try to ram tech down your throats at the first opportunity.
Why the fuck are iPad's being used as part of a gym class now in my kids school? To justify the expense of the new shiny tech that everyone is using for fear of the boogeyman jumping out and teaching kids how to do stuff without the school sponsored electronic crack dispensers!
