NMSU Purchasing, in partnership with ICT, has developed a computer workstation and notebook purchasing program that has identified cost-effective purchase options to support the majority of campus computing needs. Dell and HP computer orders are placed on Mondays, except during holidays. Any cancellations will be accepted up until 2 business days prior to order day. Contact Fred Montoya at (575) 646-2933 for more information. Pricing is subject to change.
Note: ICT will deliver your purchase free of charge. If you would like to have the system setup (out of box, data transfer, etc.) please submit a work order at our ICT Service Request site.
Typical turnaround time is approximately two to three calendar weeks from order to delivery.
Why buy a PC through ICT?
NMSU ICT acts as a value-adding reseller by removing Windows and associated software from PCs and reinstalling campus-licensed Enterprise versions of Microsoft Windows and Office in addition to useful and necessary third-party software. Along with installation services and new PC prep, ICT acts as the in-house warranty service center for PCs purchased through this program. ICT Technology Support has partnered with Dell and Hewlett-Packard to handle warranty-related hardware issues in-house, drastically reducing turnaround time when hardware failures occur. All PCs purchased through the NMSU Hardware Purchasing Program include 3-year hardware warranties, and accidental damage coverage on portable computers when possible (please see specific product descriptions for detailed information about warranty).
Please Note: The prices as shown include costs for software installation, system preparation and delivery. On-site equipment setup, transfer of data from old PCs and custom software installations will require a Work Order with ICT Technology Support Center and will incur additional costs.
All Systems purchased through the ICT PC Purchasing Program are Energy Star Compliant and contain a TPM module.
Other products not covered by these standard configurations can be obtained through the premium NMSU sites for Dell and HP.
