Computer Purchases

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.
