Acquiring Hardware & Software


Intel Ultrabook purchases.

Ultrabooks are smaller, lighter models compared to the E6330 and E6430 full size laptops.  Ultrabooks are ideal for when you are looking to have a full functioning laptop in a smaller light weight version.  The models have to sacrifice hard drive space, and generally contain smaller Hard Drives than full functioning laptops and do not have internal CD/DVD Drives, not do they have Network Interface cards to connect them to a wired LAN.  If you are looking for these features, please look at the Standard TC laptops.

All Teachers College computer and technology purchases must be approved by CIS to ensure that compatible machines and operating systems are purchased. Only systems purchased through this process can be properly supported by CIS.

The recommended model listed hear is a Dell XPS 11 12-in One Model.  The quote can be found: here
If you are looking for alternative features, like larger hard drive capacity, more memory and processor CPU speed, please contact the Help Desk for a custom quote.

For personal purchases, you can use the Dell Education discount for employees.
