UVU has established procedures and standards for the purchase of desktop and laptop computers in order to realize cost savings in volume purchasing and reduce the number of configurations that need to be supported. Orders are placed through the Wolverine Marketplace and will generate a requisition that will need to be approved. Computers will be delivered to the area tech responsible for the area that ordered the computers. Through this online ordering system, you can order complete systems and a variety of accessories and peripherals.

We recommend you consult your Area Technician before placing an order.

What kind of computer should I buy?

For ordering, go the the Wolverine Marketplace.

What kind of machine should I get?

The type of machine that would be ideal for you depends on what you’re going to be doing on it.

Laptop vs. Desktop:

  • Desktops generally have higher processing power and component availability; they have a larger number of monitor availability and have more space for additional parts. You will, however, have to purchase additional parts to utilize it fully (i.e.: monitors).
  • Laptops are great for remote work and simple set ups. They have options that include desktop-comparable processors as well as component availability. Laptops also have options for docking stations that provide a desktop like set up when you’re in the office. Depending on the machine it may not allow for more than three screens at any time (meaning you will only be able to use 2 external monitors and the laptop screen, or 3 external monitors and your laptop screen will be black).

How do I identify what a machine can do?

The following are options regarding the type of machines and uses. This can be applied to both desktop and laptop options:

  • Basic (budget) machine – Web browsing and email only
  • Performance (standard) machine – Microsoft products, web browsing, and other light software, etc.
  • Premium machine – Microsoft products, adobe products (non rendering), web browsing, etc.
  • Workstation machine – Everything in premium plus other hardware-intensive software.
  • (Laptop only) Ultrabook – Extremely lightweight, best for bringing along without sacrificing performance.
