We got our first look at the new laptop computers we will have available for workshops, classes, seminars, and meetings. They are going to be a real asset. There are six Dell Latitude D820 models with big screens, a comfortable built-in keyboard, and lots of speed and memory capacity. You can get a look at what they look like at http://www.dell.com/us/dfb/p/latitude-d820/pd?cs=28. Be sure to hit the back button to return here.
They are equipped with Windows XP, DVD drives, and ample USB slots. Standard software available for us to use are Internet Explorer, Firefox, Roxio Creator, MS outlook Express, Window Media Player and Movie Maker, MS Office 2007 components such as word, Power Point, Excel, Publishing, Imaging, Scanning, and Picture Manager. These wifi enabled computers use Symantec Security software, Word Pad and Note Pad, Address Book,and Paint.
The computers are being processed, inventoried, and made secure for use, but they will be ready for our first classes on June 21.
