Lenovo Helps Sacred Heart University Refine Notebook Program

Sacred Heart University (CT), one of the first universities to institute a mobile computing program and wireless computer network, has chosen Lenovo (www.lenovo.com) to refine its notebook program so that it will now replace students’ notebook PCs every two years. To kick off the program, Lenovo has given more than 1,900 Sacred Heart students and faculty new ThinkPad T43 notebooks loaded with the company’s ThinkVantage Technologies, which help them connect, protect, and support their computers. The program also creates an in-house IT staff at the university in order to help lower costs and keep computers in users’ hands by eliminating the need for shipping hardware off campus. In addition, Sacred Heart will maintain an inventory of notebooks and charged batteries for exchange anytime a user encounters a problem, and all T43 notebooks will come equipped with Absolute Software’s (www.absolute.com) anti-theft traceability tool, Computrace.
