New Computers and Laptops


OCIS currently supports new computer orders through the CCI contract.

For special orders that can not be fulfilled through CCI, please use the special instructions below.

HOW TO ORDER

  • STEP 1: Decide which LENOVO MODEL you want to order by looking at the CCI Web Page. (Note: We recommend the W series laptop or the tower model for faculty and staff working with or developing multimedia material.  For regular office applications and using the EPR, lower series laptop or desktop model should suffice.  The X models offer a good alternative for travel due to their small profile and light weight.

  • STEP 2: Submit your order, by filling out a Dental School On-line Computer Order form.

  • Once approved by Administrative Accounting or Grants Management, your order will be placed through ITP. OCIS will receive the order and set up the computer for you.
