Why do I need to tell eTech when I am ordering computers?

Although there are many choices when it comes to purchasing computers for personal use, the options are more limited when it comes to buying computers at UA. This is partly because UA contracts with specific vendors and also because our IT support staff are only licensed to service Dell and Apple computers. However, it is also because there are certain minimum specifications and setups required for the equipment to work with our campus systems. By alerting us when you are trying to order equipment, we can make sure you are getting all of the information you need to make informed decisions about your purchases.
