FHL Computer Lab Refresh
College of the Environment
The main student computer lab at FHL was last upgraded 5 years ago using STF funds. The main lab consists of 15 21.5" dual boot (Mac and Windows) computer from late 2013 and one 27” dual boot computer from mid 2010. This equipment should be replaced because they are not meeting the needs of students. The increasing demands on RAM for large data sets, CPU hungry software and GPU intensive 3d image stacks cannot currently be met. We have room for an additional 3 computers in the main lab and need the additional computers to keep up with the increase in students and researchers. We are also requesting 1 27" dual boot iMac to function as both a server for the 18 other computers and an instructional/presentation machine on which the students can practice presentations and take advantage of the additional graphics capability.
