Before buying a computer or printer, or to determine whether your current computer meets the minimum requirements to be supported by CIS, please review:

Personal Purchases: Students, Faculty, and Staff

Brown University Purchases: Faculty and Staff

If you are administrative staff working in an academic department, consult with your Information Technology Support Consultant (ITSC) or Departmental Computing Coordinator (DCC) about the solution that is best for you.

  • Computers
    • Apple: After consulting with your departmental computing staff, computers can be ordered from the Brown Bookstore Technology Center
    • Dell:  Dell is Brown's preferred PC vendor for strategic pricing and full support on campus. Your departmental computing staff* can create an eQuote with Dell, which can then be purchased by your department's financial coordinator in Workday.  The best pricing is available on Brown's recommended models.
