History of Computerized Education

It was in 1985 that NUCB Undergraduate School started computer distribution for students. At that time, the IBM JX5 desktop model was in use on campus. 1992, which was the year of Macintosh's first laptop computer the PowerBook 100, was also the year that Macintosh was adopted in lieu of IBM for distribution to students free of charge. Computers have developed greatly as time has passed. From 1994  modems were commonplace, and with 2001 came wireless LAN. The table below shows lists the models that have been distributed thus far.
