Computer Platforms


Hardware and Operating systems

We support Dell Optiplex desktops and Latitude laptops (Windows OS) and Apple (Macintosh OS) computers. Any computer purchased with University funds is eligible for our support, but if you choose to purchase a model of computer other than one we recommend, we reserve the right to limit our support of your computer system. Our suport for unix installations (including linux) is limited. If your computers will be grant funded we will advise appropriate computers to meet your technical specifications.

The University maintains licenses for current operating systems and software, so consult with us before you purchase these on your own. Again, this only applies if the system is purchased by Syracuse University.
