OVERVIEW


UTEP desktop and laptop computer standards are evaluated by college and departmental technology representatives each year. Specifications are evaluated and revised to ensure they meet the needs of the majority of campus users. Standardizing computer equipment increases efficiency and reduces the total cost of ownership across campus. The standards are for computer purchases for offices, computer labs, and other locations.


• Choose from Windows or Mac desktops and laptops.
• Standard software includes MS Office Pro, productivity software and security.
• Reduced pricing negotiated at UT System level.
• Warranty repairs handled by Technology Support at no cost to departments.
• Purchased standards may be modified to meet specific needs (memory,storage, monitor, etc.).
