How to Buy Computers
Computers are restricted items, meaning that regardless of dollar amount, permissions for these purchases must be approved by Purchasing.
Computers and hardware are restricted because WWU has contracts established with a number of computer vendors which give us very advantageous pricing on computer hardware. Additionally, maintenance and connectivity are simplified when consistent components are used, which keeps costs and repair times down.
Dell, Apple and Microsoft are Western's preferred providers.
All computer purchases can now be made on the WesternMarketplace. Current system configurations will be displayed in each vendor catalogue.
Apple is now LIVE on WesternMarketplace! For all computer orders purchasing full AppleCare and/or accessories, shop away!
If you need a parts only warranty please contact Maureen Christman x2314 for assistance.
