Dell donates mobile computer labs to schools impacted by hurricanes

Since Dell has been such a big part of many of our lives, I can’t help but spread the word when Dell does something really good.  I ran across a press release on Dell’s website today announcing that Dell is donating "mobile computer labs" to some of the school districts that were hit hardest by the hurricanes this past year.  This includes five school districts each for Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.  I love to see companies do things like this to help kids continue to have the technology needed in today’s schools.

Here’s a little more detail on the labs from Dell’s press release:


"Designed with input from educators, these secure, flexible mobile computer labs provide an average-sized class with a 2:1 student-to-computer ratio or better. They include:


16 Dell LatitudeTM  laptops

One Datamation mobile laptop cart

One wireless access point

One Dell laser printer

3 years Dell technical support

Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003

Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements Software

Wireless Internet access


Intel, Microsoft, Adobe, Datamation Systems, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Cable One also contributed to the donations." -Dell Inc.


Again, thank you Dell for showing your support for the kids affected by the storms.
