Recommended Computer Hardware for Departmental Purchases

For SMPH Shared Services IT to better support your staff tech needs, we have a list of approved hardware we recommend. This hardware works with common campus IT systems, provides good efficiency for the price, is used widely amongst our staff, and carries effective warranty and/or repair options.

Additionally, we ask all staff have their manager submit requests using our Purchase Request Form.  Allow up to 48 hours for review. Shared Services IT Desktop Support staff will follow up with any questions and approval. Be aware there are currently world-wide equipment delays, so allow adequate lead time and plan ahead for your order.  For example, if you know you are opening a recruitment, place a new laptop order right away giving adequate time for the laptop to arrive and be configured for your new employee on their start date.

Visit the below links for wiki articles with our suggestions. Most of these can be modified for specific purposes or we can tailor to requests outside of the specifications. Our university vendor representatives also can provide further discounts at times:
