Hardware

The hardware guide is applicable to both Dell and Apple and are intended to serve as a basic guide. They may not meet the needs of every person or be applicable to every device. 

Hardware should be ordered to meet the requirements for needs based on individual use, the applications necessary to perform job functions, and USNH policies and best practices. Note that some schools and colleges have their own minimum requirements. UNH IT strongly recommends contacting the UNH Computer Store at 603-862-1328, or the Service Desk at 603-862-4242 prior to purchasing new equipment. This way, you can feel confident the purchase is the best choice for you or your department.
