I'm not completely against the Record or anything, but I'd like to clarify that actually, thefacebook.com probably would be better if you couldn't remember a person's name, because you can search by any number of things - classes the person is in, residence hall, friends, etc. It would be a lot easier to find that random soccer player from Tolley who pissed on your floor last night, or that girl who was dancing on the table in WoCo, by searching for the things you already know about them on facebook, rather than leafing through 400 smiling faces in the record.

The one major thing the record has that the facebook does NOT is the useful information, which is pretty nice to have. Of course most of it can be found elsewhere, in Drew pamphlets, the Acorn etc. The best aspect of buying the record at this point is probably just having a collection of freshman pics which are fun to look back on/laugh at in the future.

It seems to me that it's easier to be social with the record, because in most rooms it's hard to gather around a computer with a bunch of people than it is a book.

However, at Drew in most cases we have "notebook" computers. Therefore, wouldn't this "notebook" computer be as good as a book for the purpose of crowding around and looking people up?

Since we are talking about looking people up online, and as of yet, I don't believe the first year halls have wireless internet (though I could be wrong), the portability of the notebook is restricted much more so than a book.

if the dorms are wireless, do wireless cards come with the laptops? and if they are not do we get cables or do we have to buy the cables ourselves?

The Drew provided laptops have wireless cards (all the IBM have internal wireless cards and the HP model has a PC card).

They also come with a network cord for plugging the computer into network jacks around campus.

Both CI computer model have integrated wireless cards and cables will be provided at Computer Handout. You can view information about the computers by visiting http://depts.drew.edu/cns/news/20050415-ci.php

the computers come with everything you'll need to use them, on campus or off. In fact, they almost come with too much, if you're not used to computers, and mix up the cables. (I...never did this...really).
