DVM Student Laptop Recommendations
HP Academy - Educational Discount
HP has teamed with Colorado State University to offer the opportunity to purchase HP and Compaq consumer products at discounted prices. Typically up to 10% below starting price and in conjunction with any sales or special promotions for additional savings.
The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences strongly recommends that all DVM students purchase an HP laptop computer through RAMtech. The HP Envy 15-J030US is the current recommended laptop configuration for DVM students.
The HP Envy 15-J030US has an Intel i5-2.6 GHz processor, 6 GB of DDR3-RAM, 640 GB hard drive for $750.00 (price subject to change).
