Yikes did anyone get the information packet on the new "Technology requirement" at UMD?? Will anyone be requesting a waiver? I mean, I already own a Dell, just not the exact model, and I'm very willing to load any programs that I'll need onto it (I already have the "Student Software Bundle - Word, Excel, etc.). I didn't think I needed to buy a whole new laptop for all the same programs! I have yet to how theirs are "preconfigured" with any special, new programs unique to UMD....any thoughts/info on this?
