Lending laptop pool
The Faculty of Science has a pool of 23 laptops that can be lent by employees and students of the Faculty. These are standard-RU laptops. They are almost identical in use to the pc's in the computer labs. The main difference is reservation is not through IHZ.
The reservation of the laptops is administered by the Library of Science. Use for FNWI education has precedence.
How to log in with Windows?
You can log on to the laptops with:
- either with a Science loginname and the corresponding password
- or a RU account: RU\s123456 and the corresponding password
How to log in with Linux?
NB: wirelessly using the laptops with Linux is broken since the installation of Ubuntu 14.04. Linux only works with a wired connection. Unfortunately we haven't found time to fix this. And this only works with a Science account.
What environment is offered?
The laptops are all dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04, just like the PC's in the computer labs.
The borrower promises by signing the laptop lending agreement to agree with the lending regulations of the Faculty of Science for lending laptops to students and employees.
In some special cases, a complete trolley with maximum 22 laptops can be lent for Faculty education. The trolley has been modified by C&CZ in such a way, that the laptops are connected by UTP-cable to the network, in order to have automatic updates working.
