Computer/Tablet: Hardware Specifications

The Division of Technology Services reviews computer standard configurations at least once a year to determine the configurations that will meet the needs of most employees.

To request hardware accessories, see Accessories or other Hardware Purchase.

New Full-time Permanent Employees

New full-time permanent employees can choose a standard Windows laptop or a standard MacBook Air.
Laptops come with:

  • Single external 24" Monitor (with built-in docking station for Dell)
  • Docking station (Apple only)
  • External wired keyboard
  • External wired mouse
  • Headset (stereo)

Configuration upgrades to these standard products lines need departmental or college approval/payment and will delay your order.
Upgrades may include:

  • Larger hard drive
  • Additional memory
  • Upgraded processor
  • External DVD player
  • Larger or additional monitor
  • External web cam w/ mini-tripod
  • Mono-headset (single ear)
  • Additional charger
  • Thunderbolt dock

If you have special computing needs, contact DoTS for a custom configuration and quote.

All Other Types of Employees (LTE, IAS, Project, etc.)

Part-time, adjunct faculty, LTE, and project employees can request a refurbished computer. We will do our best to accommodate the type of computer requested but may have limited quantities available at certain times of the year.

To request a new or refurbished computer please use the Request Service link.

Warranty

Our standard warranty coverage does not include accidental damage (eg: drops, coffee spills, etc.). If you want this coverage, your department needs to fund it. It also delays the delivery of your laptop. If you do have an accident with your GPR-funded computer, the computer rotation fund will cover half the cost of a replacement for the first "offense". Your department is responsible to cover the other half and 100% of subsequent accidents. Departments are 100% responsible for PR-funded computers, even for the first accident.
