Availability of a loaner computer is not guaranteed. In rare instances, loaner demand may exceed the supply. To help avoid this situation, please consider having your laptop serviced at the time that the problem occurs; do not wait until the beginning or end of the semester, as this introduces a longer wait for repairs and, in some cases, a loaner may not readily be available.
