Meet the Netbooks

Have you ever wanted to find some obscure nook of the LITC to check your e-mail? Do you want a little more privacy than in the computer commons? Well, we have a solution for you!

Enter the Netbook:
The Asus Eee PC 900A features an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4GB solid state hard drive, the resource-friendly Ubuntu Linux operating system, and integrated Wifi.

With dimensions of 9" wide, 6 3/4" long and a weight of around 2 pounds, the netbooks are the perfect size to take to the most remote corners of the library.

Our netbooks use Firefox web browser (displaying your favorite college library website):

The netbooks also have the latest version of Open Office installed. Open Office is an open source productivity suite that is nearly 100% compatible with Microsoft Office.

They will be available for checkout library-use only for two hours, with one two-hour renewal.
