Computer hardware and software standards allow the University to provide better and more efficient support for students, faculty and staff on campus.  In addition, standards facilitate the ability for the University to leverage its purchasing power directly to obtain the most cost-effective pricing available for computing equipment that meet or exceed our use case (as well as defined life cycle).  Below are our new "standards" with accompanying specifications (for Windows/Linux) for the 2012-2013 academic year.
