Refurbished Computers

Posted: 2/4/2008

Wilderness Technology Alliance http://www.wildtech.org/programs.htm

Has a program for folks to attend a 2 hour training session and receive a computer with support for 1 year.  I’m not sure what the current cost is, but a couple years ago it was all for $50.  A great deal I want to share with you in case you run into a student needing a computer.
