Office of Human Resources at Penn State has several discount codes and other corporate discounts (especially for Travel services) for being a PSU student/employee/alumnus. Above link takes you to Office of human resources page that has multiple categories for discounts.My Favorite Categories include:
Communications, Computers, Discount Portals, Transporation, Travel & Hotels
(For Lenovo discounts click)
Dell Corporate Customer Discount (extra 7% off on top of other discounts)
DELL via Amazon
Penn State Computer Store
You can buy hardware and software for low prices here.[Office, Adobe, Endnote etc.]
Steals: Office Enterprise $60. [OR FREE if an employee or grad assistant] (This has all office apps of the word, excel etc that you need, but it is available only for volume licensing - which is cool if you are at penn state or any big organization!).
However I think you can place Enterprise on only one computer. With the Microsoft office Home/student edition you can place it on three computers.
But before you buy stuff, check below for free software (norton etc) available for PSU students and staff/faculty after logging in
