You may want to contact your department and see if they have a special partnership agreement which could net you a big discount one something they prefer. That one will work but it's also bulky, heavy @ nearly 6 lbs and runs pretty warm under load. You have to ask yourself is that something you plan on packing around all the time and can you deal with the slow replacement of Amazon should something go wrong.
