The ComArtSci Technology Office will make every effort to purchase uniform technologies, in order to make replacement, parts replacement, and repair easier and less expensive for the total cost of ownership. To this end, when possible, new computer purchases should be limited to the following recommendations. Note that the below configurations are only suggestions based on the typical use case, and can be modified to fit budget and performance needs.
Exceptions to the standard systems will be subject to approval by the Technology Office and may or may not be fully supported depending on several factors. To request non-standard technologies, please Submit a Tech Request. For more information please reference the ComArtSci Technology Hardware Replacement, Retirement, and Redeployment Policy.
To request any of the following systems/components be purchased for you, please Submit a Tech Request.
Each of the following recommendations is a stand-alone system. Additonal monitors, docking stations, hard drives, mice and keyboards may increase the approximate cost. Please consider these peripherals carefully when choosing a system.
