Computer Sale

The back-to-school sale is under way at the Computer Connection (the computer store located in the far corner of the Penn Bookstore). If you're in the market for a new computer, you definitely need to check it out. In addition to being discounted a few hundred dollars, the pre-configured Mac and PC systems they sell are generally designed to meet Penn's own hardware recommendations to help guarantee you're getting a computer that will suit your needs.
