Departments are recommended to note the following when they are planning to acquire desktop and notebook PCs for office use.
Supported Desktop and Notebook PCs
The Computing Services Centre (CSC) will only provide standard support service to department's office PCs (both desktop and notebook computers) that meet all of the following requirements:
Scope of Support
|||The University has partnership programmes arranged with selected vendors for desktop and notebook PC supply, which will be periodically reviewed. Please check with the CSC or the FO for the most up-to-date information on the supported brands|
|||Models for Enterprise use are classified by vendors and not by the CSC. They are more stable, durable and reliable by design than models for home-use. Moreover, the life-time and the support service levels of enterprise models are often much better, including the availability of software drivers for new OS versions and the hardware parts even after the models’ end-of-sale periodnbsp;|
