About the Laptops
There are several Lenovo and Apple laptops offered through the UNCG Student Laptop Program. Each vendor provides a less expensive model and high-end models that offer better performance. Be sure to examine the hardware, software, and warranty-related information before making any final decision. In addition, listed below are specifications for the Lenovo Edge, a non-SLP offering which does not come with the bundle software or full 3-year warranty but is offered for purchase from the Lenovo site.
Students are free to select any of the recommended laptops for purchase. However, be sure to check with the department of your degree program to see if there are any expressed Laptop Platform Preferences.
Please review the program's Minimum Requirements for Non-Program Laptops if you are considering purchasing a non-program laptop.
