Support for iPads, Netbooks and Other Mobile Devices
iPads are one of the latest trends in technology. While not computers in the traditional sense, they can be convenient, portable devices for e-mail, surfing the web, accessing various types of media, and other functions. JMU Information Technology provides support for iPads to access the JMU Exchange e-mail system and the wireless network. For specific device support, see the following:
A netbook is a less expensive (typically $300-$500), small, lightweight, lower-performance, reduced-featured laptop best suited for web browsing, web applications and software that does not require significant processing power. They are not intended to be a primary computer, but rather a complement to a desktop or full-featured laptop.
JMU Information Technology recommends that departments desiring netbook computers purchase the Dell 2110. IT will provide setup and warranty repair services for these systems. A recommended bundle is available on Dell’s JMU Premier Page.
If the options do not meet your needs, please contact Becky Helmick, Desktop Services Manager, at 568-8083 or firstname.lastname@example.org for configuration assistance.
