If you are taking a PhotoMidwest class that uses laptop computers but do not have a computer, PhotoMidwest has one ASUS S500C laptop computer running Windows 10. There is no charge for computer use in How-To Print classes. How-To Print participants can also reserve the one desktop computer. See Store Help for details or if you have any problems making a purchase. To pay by check, use the Pay by Check Form.
The desktop computer is under Windows 10 and is ONLY available for How-To Print classes.
The only software provided on the laptop computer is Lightroom (earlier, non-CC version), Photoshop version 4, and LibreOffice (word processing. presentations, spreadsheet; compatable with corresponding Microsoft products). The laptop is strictly for in-class use only. It does not leave PhotoMidwest's premises.
The laptop computer's operating system is Windows 10. If you plan on using this laptop for other software, before arriving in the first class you should familiarize yourself with the steps needed to install your copy of the software you will use during the class. NOTE that depending on the software vendor and software product, your license may allow installing your software both on this laptop computer and one or more computers at your home. If your home computer is an Apple Macintosh, some vendors allow this second installation to be the Windows version of their product. Other vendors do not allow one license to be used for both Windows and Macintosh. Please check with your software vendor before renting this computer.
