Data computer

We offer a Windows computer with a large amount of memory (128GB) and fast processors (dual Xeon 3.0Ghz 4-core with 10M cache) in Brown Science & Engineering Library (Room i-043). This is especially helpful when using software that relies heavily on RAM, like Stata. Datasets and specialized research software are also loaded onto this machine.
