Suggested Devices (2020-21)

The Dell Latitude, Dell Precision, and Lenovo ThinkPad devices are business class laptops. These laptops have a number of advantages over consumer grade laptops including:
  • Structural features - business laptops often have a more rugged shell to withstand unexpected forces.
  • Matte displays - matte reflects less light making it easier to view in reflected lights and from a wider angle.
  • Battery - extended batteries can be purchased that allow for longer runtime and can be easily replaced if required.
  • Keyboard - improved keyboard provides more feedback on key actuation.
  • Pointing device - imbedded in the keyboard, the pointing device allows for more efficient typing and is more accurate than the touchpad.
  • On site repair - the listed business laptops can be repaired by bringing your laptop to the Service Desk. See the Repair service page for additional details.
