It wasn't a troll, it IS a fact.
Here are the facts again in case you missed them the first time:
Laptop Computer Requirement for the 2005-2006 Academic Year
All students enrolling at New York University School of Law are now
required to have a Windows-based PC laptop with a wireless Internet
connection. Whether you are studying in the Law Library, collaborating in a
study room, or taking an in-class exam, you will be using Wireless
Although you may of course use a Windows-based laptop of your choice
(provided that the laptop meets our minimum specifications, outlined
below), the Law School has made arrangements with the NYU Computer Store
for a Windows-based laptop configuration for purchase. Please see the
enclosed flyer for details. This information is also available on the
Admitted Students Web site, accessible from
A printer for personal use, though not required, is recommended for a
variety of uses including printing class handouts and take-home exams.
Although laser printers are available in the Law School¡¦s computer labs for
printing course-related assignments, reports, research projects, and the
like, you should not count on these community printers to print take-home
exams which are sometimes severely time-limited. Thus, if you are not
comfortable reading take-home exams on a computer screen, you should
purchase a printer.
For more information on Technology at NYU School of Law, visit the Law
School's Technology Web pages.
Minimum Hardware Requirements
¡E Windows 2000/XP PCs
¡E Pentium III or better
¡E 128 MB of memory
¡E 20 gigabyte hard drive
¡E 56K internal modem
¡E 100 MB Zip Drive or USB 256 MB Memory Key *
¡E CD-RW/DVD combo drive
¡E 10-base-T Ethernet p-card and cable **
¡E Wifi card, also know as IEEE 802.11b/g wireless networking card ***
* Either one of these devices can be used to transfer and save files
between your personal laptop and any of the public law school lab machines.
** The Ethernet card and cable are required to take advantage of ResNet for
high speed internet access from the residential halls and the Laptop
Roaming Network to gain internet access from various locations in
Vanderbilt Hall. If your laptop doesn¡¦t have internal Ethernet support, we
recommend the 3 Com brand 10-base-T Ethernet p-card and cable.
*** A Wireless card is needed to take advantage of the Wireless network,
for high speed internet access from various access points in Vanderbilt
Hall, D¡¦Agostino and Mercer Residence Halls, and Furman Hall. Most IEEE
802.11b and g compliant Wireless cards will work with the NYU Wireless
network, but you may need to install a VPN client for connectivity. If you
have purchased a laptop within the last 12 months, verify with the
manufacturer whether or not your laptop has a built-in/internal wireless
card before purchasing an external wireless card. For instance, if you see
a Centrino decal on your laptop, then it does have wireless capability
built-in. If your laptop does not have wireless support installed, we
recommend the Cicso Aironet PCM-350 Series (not the Air-LCM350 Card). We
cannot guarantee that non-Cisco cards will work.
