Hardware Standards

Policies

The following guidelines for standards are based on the current technology available combined with the current needs of the end-user today. These apply to both the Macintosh and Windows platforms. The primary considerations for each configuration (desktop, printing, portable computing) are:

  • Ease of connectivity to the college network
  • Consistent performance of all integrated components in our network environment
  • Industry leader with an established track record in manufacturing, sales and service
  • Successful in-house experience with the chosen product and configuration
  • Serviceability by VITEC Solutions, our Hardware Repair Service Provider
  • The machine has a minimum campus lifetime of four years
