EWU IT has developed a collection of pre-approved enterprise level computers that are supported by IT to streamline and expedite the computer ordering process. Below are best practice guides to assist with the consulting and ordering process.
Processing time varies between one to four weeks from order to delivery. The length of time depends on vendor stock availability, shipping time, and when hardware arrives at EWU (JFK Library hardware receiving).
EWU is transitioning from CDWG to OETC (Lenovo / Windows) and Apple direct (ECommerce web site) for new computer hardware purchases. CDWG remains a valid purchasing option.
Status update, which EWU learned about on Thursday, December 10th:
- Lenovo is experiencing supply constraints for touch screens on Lenovo T14 laptops until March 2021. To minimize extended delivery times, EWU is temporarily changing the T14 Standard and Performance models to a non-touch screen, which happens to be a bit brighter as well. We will update to touch screens as soon as supply constraints ease.
- There are also CPU supply constraints, delaying shipments of most Lenovo computers (laptops and desktops) until mid-February. We will do our best to process your new computers as soon as they arrive at EWU!
Thank you for your patience.
