Purchase a Macintosh
We can provide pre-purchase advice on what kind of Mac to meet your needs. We'll also tell you why we recommend what we did, if you want that level of detail. We can also outline the avenues you can take to purchase a Mac. If you are researching a new Macintosh yourself, bear in mind that it will run Mac OS X. Therefore, you should be familiar with the Mac OS X system requirements and "Mac OS X performance" tips. This can help you pick out the best Macintosh for your needs.
We provide personalized written recommendations for purchasing and configuring Macs if you contact us through the ITS Service Desk. General recommendations -- for faculty and staff or for students -- are listed in the ITS Buying Guidelines.
Whether you are buying for yourself or for the Institute, you can shop for Apple systems on-line at the Apple Store for Education. Apple products can also be obtained through Campus Connections, the RIT bookstore.
