Internet/Personal Tablets | Peripherals | Redeployed Equipment
The University has entered an agreement with two PC suppliers. Getech will provide us with Lenovo desktops, notebooks and monitors; and Stone will provide us with any Apple branded equipment.
Below is a list of the current recommended PCs with a brief description. The full details of recommended computers and monitors can be found on either our Getech or Academia portals, which also include up to date pricing for each specification.
Access to the Academia portal is currently restricted while it is being configured. In the mean time if you have a requirement for any Apple PCs please contact the ITS Helpdesk.
* This is a built to order model; delivery time is 3-4 weeks and the PC has a 3 year onsite warranty. Please contact the IT Services Helpdesk for assistance with choosing the correct specification.
Our BLUE and ORANGE Lenovo specifications can be built as an all-in-one unit with touch screen if required. However, these are built to order models with a delivery time of 3-4 weeks and a 5 year onsite warranty.
At this time Apple do not offer any touch capable desktop or notebook PCs.
The PC specifications given are designed to be suitable for almost all of the University's requirements. If you are unsure which PC best fits your needs or it you feel that you require a different specification please contact us to discuss your request.
Delivery times from the supplier for recommended models is 1-2 business days. Delivery times for non-recommended models will be 3 to 4 weeks.
The table below shows the warranty level provided with each PC. These warranties are a requirement of the University and cannot be removed.
If you wish to purchase an internet/personal tablet please read our purchasing guidelines before contacting IT Services with your requirements. Due to the fast development of these products we do not currently recommend a specific tablet.
For IT consumables (e.g. USB Flash drives and external hard drives under £100) it is not necessary to contact IT Services for a quotation. These item can be purchased directly from our supplier, Insight UK. For any other equipment or if you are unsure please contact the IT Helpdesk for advice.
The table below defines the minimum specification of PC (desktop or notebook) that IT Services will deploy to staff through the University's ‘Redeployment & Disposal of IT Equipment Policy’.
The above PC specifications are suitable for running Microsoft Office 2013, standard productivity tools (e.g. Adobe Reader), other basic software and browsing the internet. It is recommended that you run only one or two applications at a time on this specification.
