Does Michigan Tech offer discounts?
Michigan does not sell computers. However, discounts are available through Dell and many companies offer discounts for students. Student discount section can usually be found by searching on the internet for "student discount" and a company name, e.g., Dell, HP, etc. We have found that purchasing a computer through the Dell discount program typically lowers the cost and provides greater warranty options- we suggest exploring warranty details when comparing models and costs.What do I do if my laptop breaks?
