UMass Lowell's IT group has worked with the university staff and faculty to develop a pool of standardly configured systems. These recommendations are based on cost, convenience and, in event of a failure, campus-provided IT support for your equipment on both Windows and Apple platforms.
For computer standards, please review our supported configuration document (pdf).
How do I purchase a computer from these hardware standards?
- Place your order.
If you want to purchase a computer from the list of hardware standards, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate which computer you want to purchase along with the speed type that will fund the purchase. The help center will place the order for you.
- Install your new computer.
Once the computer arrives, the help center will schedule an appointment to install the computer and transfer all data from your old computer to the new computer.
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view any pdf files. It can be download for free from the Adobe website.
