Purchase Hardware

Dell and Lenovo are the approved vendors for the Campus-wide Hardware Procurement program at this time.

You may shop for or purchase an approved computer with a Pcard or Purchase Order through eMarketplace.

For questions or assistance selecting and configuring appropriate hardware models, please contact 6-TECH at 6-TECH@uncg.edu, or (336) 256-TECH (8324).

  • In the Lenovo online store available through UNCG’s eMarketplace, ITS recommends that you add the options “Keep Your Hard Drive” and “Accidental Damage Coverage” when choosing a laptop, as these options are not included in the Lenovo standard configuration pricing. Likewise, ITS recommends that you select the “Keep Your Hard Drive” option when choosing a desktop system, as this is not included in the Lenovo standard configuration pricing. These ITS-recommended options are reflected in the Dell standard configuration pricing, for both the laptop and desktop systems.

    Note: “Keep your hard drive” is a selection that allows for defective hard drives to be replaced without sending the original hard disk back to manufacturer – this provides a measure of security for data that should not be exposed to unknown resources.  The accidental damage provision provides coverage for most damage that is not manufacturer defects, nor intentional misuse.  A detailed description of what is and is not covered can be found in the manufacturer’s online store available through UNCG’s eMarketplace.
  • Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro is your current OS selection on all systems by default, but the appropriate OS will be loaded on the computer by UNCG when it is delivered.
  • While software is available within the Lenovo configuration, it is recommended that you visit Software @ UNCG for availability at UNCG at low or no cost.  Any software that is selected with the computer on the manufacturer’s e-store will incur an additional and likely unnecessary cost.

Note: Any purchases of Windows-based PCs not covered by our CHP program (with the exception of the Microsoft Surface Pro) must be approved through a campus-specific exception process. Log into eMarketplace, then select and fill out the Non-Standard PC Configuration Justification Form.
