Where is the wireless network?

Can I renew after 2 hours?

Yes, you can renew a laptop. You will only be asked to wait 30 minutes between checkouts during extremely heavy demand times.

Fines accrue at the rate of $10.00 for every hour or portion of hour. If there are any items missing from the computers (e.g. stylus, zip or floppy drive) fines will continue to accrue until the item is turned in or the item is reported lost

Am I responsible for loss, theft, or damage of the computers?

Yes. You are responsible for replacement or repair costs of the computers and their components during your checkout period. Replacement cost for any single computer is $2500.00.

What software is available on the laptops?

All the laptops contain the same software found in the ATUS Labs.
