Campus Computer Hardware Options and Ordering

This document details the options for university departments purchasing new computer hardware.

All campus computers and tablets must be purchased through IT to ensure we can support them.  We will not support any other hardware unless we give written permission.  Any questions on the details for these computers can be directed to Zach Gloshen (x2470).

These prices below are the current estimates and are subject to change.  Macs can easily be configured with any option Apple offers.  Although we can order computers any time of the year, we encourage departments to submit purchases for the large spring order to reduce our costs.  Our price on HP's is valid all year, but it's dependent on the number of computers we purchase in Spring.  We get a discount on our Apple order in spring (except iPads), but pay normal academic prices the rest of the year.  Microsoft discounts change monthly.  All desktops and laptops come with 3 year warranties.  iPads can be purchased with AppleCare.

*Macs support additional monitors, but will require adapters ($10-30).

4-5 year old computers with monitors are reused for qualified student workers, Ad-Hocs, rentals, etc.  Rentals are $45/month and include monitors.  Purchase price is $100 with a one year life cycle.


Laptops no longer include a carrying case. I may have some used cases available. I can also order a Dell Sleeve for $12 or a Dell Carrying Case for $34.

*Docking station is required for dual monitors support.  It comes with a power adapter so one can be left at the user's desk all the time.  Docking stations are highly recommended when the laptop is the primary computer for a user and they plan to hook it up to a monitor.  


iPads must be purchased through IT.  We can only manage them if we purchase through Apple.  AppleCare is available and recommended for the more expensive models.

HP monitors are compatible with Macs, however they will require the purchase of an adapter (up to $29).  

We often have used HP 19" monitors available for $30 each.  

We now offer a Dell 24" monitor with USB-C.  It can transfer both power and video over a single USB-C cable to our newest HP laptops and MacBooks, and it can daisy chain a second monitor for Windows computers.  This can potentially eliminate the need for docking stations in some cases (as long as you don't need wired network), or be an alternative to buying a second power adapter to just leave on your desk.
