Laptop For Students Campaign Launched

 

Updated : Aug 20, 2009

Laptops4Students is a new initiative aimed at providing affordable, high-spec laptop solutions to students and families in Ireland.

Working closely with many third-level colleges throughout the country and with endorsement from the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), the Laptops4Students programme offers college-approved laptops at discounts of up to 45% off regular retail prices.

David Byrne, General Manager of the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) commented “At a time when the costs of going to college have increased, the Laptops4Students programme is a welcome reprieve for cash-strapped students as they prepare to go to college.”

Backed by leading technology companies Hewlett Packard (HP), Microsoft and Intel the initiative represents significant cost saving to students – with every laptop bundle containing over €500 of extras - including the Microsoft Office

Professional 2007 suite, anti-virus software, a college backpack, memory key and a 3 year warranty. HP Ireland’s Head of Personal Systems Group, Martin Cullen, expressed his delight at the PC leader’s involvement “HP Ireland are delighted to be the laptop vendor of choice for the Laptops4Students programme.”
“All parties involved, the colleges and the key technology partners - HP and Microsoft - have worked together to get the right fit between what students need in a college laptop, and what represents excellent value for money. A laptop for college needs to be more like a business laptop than a laptop for home-use. It needs a business operating system and professional application suite. Also, warranty and support are hugely important.” said Mike Lynch, Programme Manager for Laptops4Students.
He added, “The feedback from colleges and universities around the country is very positive. Over 40 Irish colleges and universities have chosen Laptops4Students as their endorsed student laptop programme for 2009. Colleges see the programme as providing a valuable service to students as well as removing some of the headaches of their own IT staff.”
The programme’s website www.laptops4students.ie launched earlier this month, has already received over 23,000 hits.
