CAS is looking to upgrade our office computer systems. Why is this important? ¨ Some of the machines are more than 7 years old. ¨ None of them can run the updated version of our synagogue database (called ChaverWare) Ideally, we would like to obtain 7 identical PC's, either by buying them new or by accepting donated PC's if they are available. The minimum requirements are dual 64 cpu's, 2ghz or better, 2gb RAM & 80gb hard drives. We already have 4 up-to-date flatscreen monitors, so new monitors are not a priority. We have been quoted roughly $625 per machine not inc luding setup and software costs.
