Getting Started with Hardware

We recommend that your personally owned computer meets University at Buffalo standards. Discover how to purchase personally owned and departmental computers. Check which UB information technology services are available to you on your mobile device(s).

We recommend Windows or Apple laptops or computers for academic coursework. Tablets or smartphones are also helpful for on-the-go note-taking and messaging.
Find and purchase computers, mobile devices and other electronic equipment at a discount from licensed sellers. Computers should meet our hardware standards to be best supported.
If you are faculty or staff, your department may allow you to order computers, mobile devices and other electronics.
