Purchasing Dell Computers

On this page:

In partnership with Dell, UB has identified configurable standards that include the UB desktop image and are supported by the UBIT. You can purchase other Optiplex and Latitude models, Precision workstations, servers, storage, printers and IT peripherals, supplies and accessories.

UB Dell Premier Store

The UB 2020 workstation standards are located on the home page of the UB Dell Premier Store website. You may upgrade the configurations by following the screen options.

Consult Your IT Node for Workstation Standards

Not all brands and types of notebooks, desktops and tablets can be easily supported by the campus IT staff. Contact your information technology support staff for assistance. Find the support staff for your unit, department or academic area.
