Dell boasts of education sales
Among its deals, according to Dell: The Center for Academic Computing at Penn State University installed a server cluster comprising 42 Dell PowerEdge 1550 servers. The cluster enables researchers at Penn State to study subjects such as computational chemistry, theoretical ecology, and gravitational physics. The Mission Consolidated Independent School District in Texas standardized the entire district on Dell systems, including 2,250 Dell OptiPlex desktops and 17 PowerEdge servers, displacing the district's old Apple systems. University of Washington at Bothell moved to a new campus in the fall and standardized 90 percent of the campus on Dell hardware.
