Reminder: Summer 2014 Visitor Equipment Orders Due

Just a reminder, we are sending in our orders this Friday, April 18th. If you have already responded to us, you can ignore this message.

Hi all,

Summer is approaching and so it’s time to order any new equipment needed for the influx of visitors.

Below are the specs on our recommended equipment for this summer. Feel free to request a desktop, monitor or both as needed. To ensure your equipment is here prior to your visitor’s arrival, please submit your orders to systems@mcs.anl.gov before Friday, April 18th.

If nothing is submitted to us by April 18th, we will assume you have made other arrangements and we won’t be able to guarantee we will have anything available on their start date if this changes.

Lastly, if possible, let us know who your order will be associated with so we can get them distributed easier when the machines arrive.

As always, let us know if you have any questions!
