Reduction in Charge for PC Equipment Maintenance

Computer Centre is pleased to announce a reduction in the maintenance charge for PC equipment and peripherials with effect from 1 July 1999. Similar to previous years, the price reduction is brought about by the continuous reduction in the price of PC hardware and equipment and we are passing this benefit to our users. The PC maintenance service is provided by Computer Centre's in-house Maintenance Team, and it is our aim to provide cost-effective, convenient and fast-responding hardware maintenance service to all the PC users in the University.

This year, the maintenance charge for all PC models have been reduced, with the most significant drop in the Pentium models. We believe that the new pricing is very attractive and will benefit all PC users in the University as a whole.
