Order a computer through ITS

Why buy a preferred PC through ITS

Information Technology Services (ITS) is working with the NDSU Bookstore to facilitate HP computer configurations and purchase options. 

The preferred models provide robust and powerful computers for most uses, improve service and save money by:   
  • Streamlining ordering and saving time and money spent researching all the options available 
  • Work with the Bookstore to achieve faster delivery times 
  • Allowing ITS to inventory your standard computer hardware for you, and start the ticket for setup 
  • Enhancing support through a common hardware base 
  • ITS is able to leverage the common hardware to provide faster and more consistent installations 
  • The systems will be delivered direct to ITS for faster setup 
The campus agreement includes Microsoft Office 2019 at no cost. Prices are subject to change without notice. Your department will receive the IDB (inter departmental bill) from the Bookstore. 
  
CD-DVD-RW drives are no longer standard. With the move away from CD drives by the manufacturer, ITS recommends departments purchase and keep an external CD drive for common use among department members.
