Laptop for project use

Hi Günther, how possible is it for the Ugandan team to get a laptop for team use on the project from the start up fund you mentioned? The majority of us don't have computers at home and have to use school resources and it can become inhibiting because the schools close early and we can't put in efforts during our free times at home as we would like. It could be in a central place and those who need to borrow it and use overnight and return it the following day for use by another person. I hope I am not making an out of touch request. please kindly advise.--WikiFlora 05:26, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Florence, I can see this urgent need of your team. Where is your school located? Close to Vincent's? How big is the risk for the laptop to "get feet"?--Günther Osswald 07:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Our schools are about 14km apart(Vincent's school is a bit out of town while mine is just on the outskirts of town-(within Makerere university campus))but well transport is available but not so cheap,I could say!Also I see no big risk for the safety of the laptop.On the other hand,Joseph's and Peter's schools are nearer to mine than Vincent's. It would be better for instance,if Vincent becomes the custodian of it. Since already,we use his school as our meeting point.But laptops are a bit expensive here(in Uganda)....a P4, 3GHZ processor speed, 1GB RAM goes for averagely 1.5 million UG shs.(US $857)....I am sure productivity would be greatly boosted and we are all really responsible people--WikiFlora 15:14, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi Florence, thanks for this info. I am thinking it over.--Günther Osswald 16:35, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
