Comment: Thinkpads.... (Score 1) 594

by nathanmace (#14827382) Attached to: Laptops Required for Freshmen
A lot of comments seem to be saying that the school should just offer a set of requirements that the laptop must meet and then let the student choose whatever brand they want. The problem with that is that since the school *requires* laptops, they are also probably supporting the laptops. If that is the case they would be insane to support whatever the student decided to buy. They would have to standardize on one brand and stick with it just to keep the support headache to a minimum. I haven't read the article, so I don't know for a fact that the school does support the laptops. But I imagine they do....

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
