UC Davis writes new PC policy

The University of California at Davis will join a growing number of colleges that expect entering undergraduates to own a computer. The school's new guideline states that "every entering undergraduate student will be expected to own a computer that meets certain minimum performance standards and that can connect effectively to the Internet." Because the university is "expecting" students to have a computer, rather than merely suggesting it, eligible students should be able to receive financial aid, likely a loan, to pay for it, the university said. The school has a partnership with Dell Computer to offer students a desktop or laptop, starting around $1,000 for a computer, 17-inch monitor, software package and four-year warranty.
