Laptops Required for Freshmen

sailor420 UNC Chapel Hill has required this for years (594 comments)

UNC Chapel Hill has required incoming freshmen to have laptops for at least the last five years. They give a minimum specifications list, but also have a university sponsored laptop program that sells IBM machines along with a nice warranty and insurance policy. Most students opt for the IBMs so they don't have to mess with it, and speaking as someone who works in the IT support department there, it sure makes life easy when you're troubleshooting problems.

I'm sure IBM (Lenovo, now) makes a pretty penny on it, though...
