University IT people: How should prospective students find laptop requirements?
I'm specifically talking about something other than a decent generic word processor/browser/email McLaptop for say Faculty of Arts courses. Say an engineering/architecture course that requires a particular software.
Do course directors / faculties / tutors make the laptop minimum specs available on the Uni website?
Or is this something they'd have to phone/email the faculty office to obtain?
How common are discounts on certain brands through deals with the Uni?
Aka: my Uni made this information freely available back in *mumble* and it was easy to find - are our students being lazy or is it not communicated these days?
