Purchasing Laptops and Tablets

Laptops are vital for staff that tend be on-the-go a lot. Handy at conferences, events, meetings and a variety of other places.

We can supply a variety of different laptops to staff and departments within the University. Please see the information below regarding different types, hardware spec levels and sizes of laptop.

As always, if you have any questions or queries then please contact the IT Purchasing team. Staff within schools should liaise with their School IT Technicians and those within Services should liaise direct with the IT Purchasing team and their purchase requisitioner.

Laptops

We recommend the following range of laptops. Whilst we recognise the different variety of needs that staff will have we believe we offer the best approach by listing the following laptops below:

All laptops that are bought through our suppliers come with a 3 year warranty as standard.

We have followed the same format as we do for desktop PCs and only supplied hardware spec levels rather than manufacturer names and model numbers. Due to the fact that laptops change hardware far more often than with desktop PCs, we find this way is far easier to keep track of with the numerous laptop manufacturers that are part of the HE desktop & laptop supplier agreements.

Please contact the IT Purchasing team should you have any questions or queries. Orders for new laptops should be placed through the EmarketPlace.
