Hi everyone, Glenn pointed out that we having a couple of missing ist web
pages that provided information to students on computer purchases. The files
Links to these pages are contained in pages maintained by Arts and Math:
I went looking for pages containing recommendations on student purchases and
was not able to find any other faculty pages. I only found a reference in
the mypc web site (http://mypc.uwaterloo.ca/) to our ist Windows site
which is primarily focused on purchases by the academic-support areas.
1. is there a need for a page(s) providing information for students on
computer purchases? Western has quite a good page
But maintaining this type of information is very difficult.
2. is this something that should only be provided at the faculty level?
3. should we remove all recommendations for purchase and leave it to the
Futureshop sales clerk?
