College Owned Computers/Devices
If you're purchasing a computer or device (laptop, iPad, etc) that will be owned by the college, no matter how it's being paid for, contact the ITS Service Desk for assistance. This applies to any device purchased with department funds, startup funds, grants, etc. We have specific models, warranty requirements, and pricing for devices that we will own and officially support. Be sure to contact us at least a couple of weeks before you need the device. Lead times vary based the vendor and availability.
If you're purchasing accessories (dongles, adapters, etc), please see the information on our Technology Recommendations web page.
Personally Owned Computers/Devices
Students and employees purchasing devices for themselves can of course purchase most anything from any vendor they choose. While we aren't involved in the actual purchase, we do offer guidance on our Technology Recommendations web page.
If you have any questions, just let us know.
