Information on recommended laptops and desktops for faculty and staff.
Procurement Services and DotCIO are pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative to provide recommended laptops and desktops to our faculty and staff with a streamlined procurement process through our strategic partner, CDW-G. The computer systems represent great options for most faculty and staff traditional workloads and include options from two Gartner leaders and strategic partners of Rensselaer, Dell and Lenovo. In addition, they include premier support services and enable our IT staff to quickly deploy and offer the most effective support services.
These systems can be found via the CDW-G punch-out in OSCAR on the menu to the left. In addition, non-OSCAR users can view the systems by visiting the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and CDW-G Punchout Page.
Our commitment is to continue to evaluate the best partners, products and specifications for our campus and keep this portal updated. In addition, we plan to work with CDW-G to improve the capabilities over time including maintaining inventory of our configurations to provide the fastest possible fulfillment.
Questions regarding ordering should be directed to Bob McGrath, Account Manager-Higher Education. Those having questions regarding laptop selection or configurations can submit a Support Request. For all other questions, please reach out to Strategic Sourcing Manager Kim Ragosta.
