Tablet PC Specifications

The hardware is a convertible Tablet PC. These machines are laptops that are fully functional as a PC but also have a write-sensitive screen that allows students to write on the screen as if it was a piece of paper. This allows students to take notes in class in their own handwriting, to highlight lectures from their faculty, and provides many other test taking functions not available with a basic laptop. The Tablet PC has built-in wireless capabilities, making any classroom or outside area on campus a computer lab.

The student's computer will be replaced after 4 years with current computer technology. The 4-year old computers will then be sold at the SDSMT Bookstore at the current market value.

The hardware will be leased via a tax-exempt lease and will be the property of the school until the lease expires. This gives the School of Mines the right to install any site-licensed departmental software. If the students owned the laptops or used other laptops, they would not be able to install most of the School of Mines site-licensed software and would not be able to connect to the state network with ease.
