As of last year, when I last visited DigiPen, they were committed to
Autodesk Animator (and associated software) on high-end 486 boxes.
Part of their commitment to students was that they would purchase a
new machine for every two new students (i.e. there would always be a
maximum of 2 students per machine). Tuition is on the order of $10k,
but that is, according to DigiPen (and I wouldn't know), cheap considering
what they offer in terms of training, actual video production, and
future portfolio-building.
