First laptop giveaway for students in 2008 starting
Some of the first student laptops (running Linux) acquired by the Department of Computer Science are here ready to
be given to the first-year students.
The process was formally organized as a maximum of five-year loans, and students were required to return the device
if they finish their computer science studies earlier.
