This last week we went to a handful of schools and in every case the school had some "deal" with Dell, Apple or other maker.

The deal was better than you would suspect since it included on campus support.

That sentence is very hard to decipher. But do ask your school about what they suggest. Some, like Framingham, MA require laptops with Wifi. And their Dell deals are quite good. The campus support of that laptop was also impressive since they were able to get the machine fixed in just a day at the support office.

Consumers would kill for such support.
