The Summer 2014 Cooperative Technology Purchase order form is available. The offerings for this purchase are much like those of the Spring 2014 Cooperative Purchase.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind with this order:
- We are using an online order form for the Summer 2014 Cooperative Purchase. Please fill it out online, once we receive your order, we will send a confirmation email. Please respond to the confirmation email so that we can ensure your order is correct.
- We will be offering the new iPad for purchase in this order. As these devices are very subjective and require user specific iTunes accounts, SELCO cannot provide support for them.
- Systems are coming with Windows 7 now, and due to the fact Microsoft has not released a version of Steady State for Windows 7, we will have to start using Faronics Deep Freeze to lock down the public computers. This is a paid solution from Faronics and is not free as Steady State was previously. You will notice this option on the bottom of page one for Deep Freeze, select this if you are planning on getting a public computer or using a Nettop for an iPac computer.
- Windows XP and Microsoft office 2003 reached end of life on April, 2014. While they will continue to work, no future updates for them will come out. If you have systems running these it may be time to consider upgrading. Some computers can be upgraded without having to purchase new software. Public computers being upgraded will need to have a copy of Faronics Deep Freeze purchases for them.
Please submit your orders online by Friday, July 25, 2014. For further information, please contact the SELCO Help Desk.
