Special Use Computers

CLASSE IT has a standard computer configuration that most users are familiar with. These computer categories encompass computing devices that are not the standard computer configuration. A computer that is special use is also task specific - intended to be used to run one program or do one very specialized task. Other functionality is curtailed - you won't want to try to perform tasks these categories were not configured to do on the computers in them as the tasks will very likely fail. A list of existing categories follow with information about what they can and can't do. In any case where you need more information, please contact CLASSE IT via a service request.
