ITS Support and Purchasing Guidelines

Students, the information on these pages can be used to aid in purchasing decisions, however you should consult your academic department for any specific computer hardware or software you may need for your academic work.

Computing technology changes often, and ITS makes every effort to keep these recommendations up to date, so be sure to check this page for the latest information. ITS generally advises that an office computer be replaced after 3 to 5 years of service. With the cost of new equipment constantly declining, upgrades are generally not cost-effective after a machine becomes four or five years old.
