Desktop/Laptop Standards

(Updated May 27, 2022)

Computing Purchases

IT Support Services standard configurations are for new computing purchases, which meet the majority of needs for faculty and staff. Ideally, new computer purchases should be one of these configurations. If these configurations do not meet your needs, adjustments can be made for legitimate business purposes. All prices below are approximate and include tax and shipping.

Sustainability

All systems below have an EPEAT Gold rating. For more information about the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) please visit their Website: http://www.epeat.net

In an effort to be sustainable, used items, which still meet campus standards, are occasionally available from ITSS. If you think a used item might meet your needs, please note that in your purchase ticket.

Warranty

Dell systems include a 3-year warranty (included in the prices below). Accidental Damage Protection is optional for all Dell laptops (not included in prices below).

All Apple systems come with a standard 1-year warranty; an AppleCare extended warranty is optional (2 or 3 years based upon the item purchased).

Microsoft Surface systems come with a standard 1-year warranty; a 3 or 4 year Microsoft Complete warranty is optional, which adds Accidental Damage coverage.  Microsoft Complete must be purchased within 45 days of device purchase.

Time to Receive Purchases

Apple, Dell, and Microsoft purchases typically take four to six weeks to arrive on campus. A number of factors impact the time of arrival (CPU or memory shortages, pre-built vs custom-built configurations, etc.).

CURRENT STATUS - Expect longer wait times to receive items during the pandemic due to supply chain shortages and other factors.
Pre-pandemic orders would typically arrive on campus in four to six weeks.
Most orders currently are taking eight to twelve weeks to arrive on campus.
