New Computers

We’ve gotten rid of our 4-year-old computers in the Reference and Periodicals Rooms, replacing 17 Dells and 12 Apples all with new iMacs like the ones pictured above. These computers have been specially configured to run Windows XP in addition to Mac OS X. At startup, you can choose which operating system you would like to use. 

We still have 10 traditional Windows PCs available, but suspect that even the die-hard Windows users will be drawn to the gorgeous 20-inch displays on the new computers. (And don’t worry, those funny one-button Apple mice really do have a “right-click.”)

We expect these new systems will offer the best of both worlds, with only minor compromises. Please try them out, ask us if you have any questions, and let us know what you think.
