Webstore, Choosing an operating system when purchasing a new computer for your department
When purchasing a new PC, you should customize the default configuration and select the cheapest operating system option. The system configuration price can be reduced by as much as $85, by selecting this option. Please check with your department IT administrator before ordering, as there can be exceptions to this strategy. You should never purchase Microsoft Office from the hardware vendor, as this product will now be available through the University at no charge.
