CAS Computer Replacement Program FY 2015

Replacement Program Configurations FY 2016

Note that you may also view configurations similar to these at the Depot Bookstore website, however CAS Computing Services places all orders. Also note that because of the length of time between request and order, the actual computer you receive may be slightly different from the below. In general though, these revisions are to your benefit (better computer, newer software, same price to us).

Standing Policies
  • This is a replacement program; you do not get to keep your old computer under any circumstances.
  • CAS Computing provides one each of all adapters necessary to use the computer in the average office and classroom. All other peripherals and extras are at departmental expense. If you lose any of the provided adapters, replacements are also a departmental expense.
In general these computers:
  • do not have an optical drive (aka a CD ROM or DVD drive)
  • do not have a wired network or Firewire port, and may require adapters for certain purposes
  • may have a smaller screen than your current computer
  • may have a smaller hard drive storage space
  • are not upgradable as far as RAM or hard drives
  • do not have a removable battery (and therefore have a predefiined usable life of approximately five years)
