Hardware Standards

Computer Hardware Standards

The College's current standards have been carefully chosen because of their power, flexibility, quality, and ability to meet a wide variety of campus needs, and value for the money. These are models the IT staff can effectively troubleshoot and get parts for, and for which the College maintains service agreements. The College computing standards change frequently in order to keep up with technological and industry changes, College needs, and product availability.

At present the College purchases Dell and Apple desktop and laptop computers.
