Recommended Hardware

In an effort to provide guidance in the often confusing world of computing, CCRI provides recommended hardware configurations for purchasing laptops, desktop computers, mobile devices, and other hardware for faculty and staff campus-wide. These recommendations are intended to provide minimum specifications and ensure compatibility for a successful computing experience at CCRI.

Please contact the IT Service Desk if you have any questions or are uncertain of the specifications of a system.

The process for purchasing recommended hardware

To request an electronic quote (E-Quote), please call the Service Desk at 825-1112.  The Service Desk will then email you the E-Quote number. This number will need to be included in your College Requisition. The College Requisition will need a brief description and the E-Quote Number; no need to type all the details anymore. Using the E-Quote, the purchasing department can now place your order electronically.
