Computer Options for Workstation Refresh Program
Texas A&M University-San Antonio
FY2018

Following is an overview for how different computers will be refreshed, as well as a list of options for new computers.

  • If a computer that is on the refresh cycle was a special build, ITS will handle it on a case-by-case instance.
  • Full-time staff who are Directors or above will be issued a standard Windows laptop.
  • All regular full-time staff will be issued a standard Windows desktop unless otherwise approved for a laptop by the department head based on their job duties.
  • All staff primary and secondary and department-use computers will be refreshed with standard Windows computers unless authorized by the division head.
  • Full-time faculty are assigned laptops and may choose any of the standard models and platforms shown in the chart below.
  • ITS will offer standard and high-end computer options on various platforms depending on the models available each year. Please reference FY2018 Refresh options list below for this year’s options.
  • Please note, although Mac computers are an available option, not all software is available for use on a Mac computer. So, if you are using any specialty software, please confirm it is usable on a Mac. If it is, you or your department may need to purchase a new license for use on a Mac.

Ensuring Data Transfer

To ensure that all data is transferred to the new computer adequately, the old computer will be stored in a secure area in ITS for 30 days before getting wiped. 

Computer Peripherals

When the new computer is issued, any old peripherals such as but not limited to, smaller than 23” monitors, docking stations, keyboard and mouse, that do not work may be changed out.  If your new computer comes with a monitor, it will be 1 – 23” monitor.  If you would like a second monitor of the same size, there will be a chargeback to the department if approved.
