What's Going On
As of 11/3/2009, the RAD committee decided to reimpose limits to LCDs and laptops.
If you can demonstrate that your organization needs the following items: * Laptops * LCD monitors You can apply for a maximum of 3 of each. If you need more, after 90 days, you may re-apply. It is necessary to detail why you need laptops as opposed to PCs and why you need LCD monitors as opposed to CRT monitors. Please be as specific as possible. - http://www.freegeek.org/grants/
