At SCALE14x, KOC received a generous donation from Pogo Linux and Micron – a beast of a workstation with the following specs:
- Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0 GHz Quad-Core Processor
- 16GB DDR3 Memory
- Micron 480GB SATA SSD
- Western Digital 6TB SATA Hard Drive
- Nvidia GTX 960 4GB PCI-E DVI/HDMI DisplayPort
- 12x Blu-Ray Burner / 16x DVD+R
- Mid-Tower Chassis with 665W Power Supply
- Intel Z87 Express Chipset
- 3 year warranty
The box is valued at $2600 retail.
We discussed utilizing the workstation in one of our labs, but decided it would be more than what our schools need. In lieu of that, we have set up an eBay auction to sell the workstation to the highest bidder with all of the proceeds going to Kids on Computers.
The winner will get credit with a blog posting. If the box sells for the “Buy it Now” price of $10,000 or higher, the donation will fund a new computer lab and the winner can name it after the person of their choice. They will also get a plaque in the school and permanent credit on http://kidsoncomputers.org/labs.
A huge thank you to SCALE, Pogo Linux, and Micron for the donation.
Kids on Computers is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit and we appreciate your support. Thank you!
