Students gain access to the campus network and It systems via approximately 2500 computers in RGA’s. In addition to this access the aim is to encourage students to increasingly use their own laptops or tablets. In line with this initiative competitive prices for laptops were negotiated by means of a country-wide student laptop project. The computers have been tested and approved by the IT-department of the SU and are therefore being recommended to students.
The products are well priced with a considerable discount on the fixed price list of some of the models. All models come standard with Windows 7 and Office 10 Pro – another saving of R1200-00.
Models ranging from entry-level to advanced – four each from both Acer and Lenovo – have been chosen. The specifications are equivalent per category and you can therefore easily choose the brand that suits your needs best.
You can order your laptop online directly from the manufacturers by following the links below:
