ThinkPad X42 tablet PC - Wireless|
Faculty teaching math and computer science courses can annotate charts, formulas and equations on their tablets that can then be transmitted in real-time to each student's tablet or notebook PC via the university's wireless network. Students can use the tablets to build advanced technology skills in preparation for the digital workplace. For example, students studying Business Administration can enhance their presentation skills by learning how to integrate tablet PCs into meetings and discussions.

"Since the deployment of ThinkPad X41 Tablet PCs, we have received only positive feedback from the faculty and students who have used the tablet and its writable slate to take notes, draw illustrations and transmit electronic documents," said Doug West, director of communications, University of Richmond. "We believe tablets will play an increasingly pivotal role on campus. The ThinkPad technology offers endless possibilities for improving and revolutionizing the university's classroom learning environment."
