One of the HWS institutional goals is to replace faculty and staff primary computers on a four-year cycle, as budget permits. When computers are scheduled for replacement, faculty and staff will be contacted by a technician from IT Services' Field Support Team.
Below is the current list of HWS replacement computers. The specifications as listed are standard and any additional peripherals (e.g. external monitor or docking station) will require a budget number prior to ordering the computer equipment.
All computers include Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and anti-virus software. The choice between Apple and PC should be motivated by the applications that are required to perform your job duties.
Once a new computer has been ordered and delivered to campus, the Field Support team will coordinate installation and the return of the old computer.
Note: In an effort to best utilize funds, HWS is moving to a self-insured model. If your computer requires replacement or repairs that are not covered under warranty, your department will incur a $200 deductible to facilitate that replacement or repair, at the time of repair. Items not covered by warranty include breakage as a result of drops and spills, theft, fire, vandalism, accidental damage and natural disasters.
