My tech draft/engineering & design teacher has computers lined around the room with CRT's and mostly ball mouses save for 2, because someone stole the balls out of them lol. The worst part is that they are on 256MB RAM.
The library has LCD's, opticals, and 512MB RAM. it's so not fair.
lol, yeah. We got about the same deal at my school. The library has dual core systems (Athlon X2 3200) and 64bit systems (Athlon 64), all with LCDs, dual cores have 1GB ram, 64 bits have 512MB ram... My english teacher even has a dual core system. My drafting class has P4 2.8GHz HT systems w/ 512MB ram and CRT monitors, they are at least 5 years old, probably more. Think maybe the drafting class needs an upgrade before the library and English teacher? My drafting class also has a bunch or random mice, different brands, some optical, some ball. I luckily got a computer w/ an optical that works well.
At least they upgraded the systems for my filmmaking class... Wonder if they did for the animation class, last year we had Athlon XP's in those systems and they lagged pretty bad...
