ITS has prepared a document and worksheet to assist you with planning your computer and related technology requests as you put together your 2011-2012 fiscal year budgets.
Due to changes in Apple’s product line, we find it necessary to make some changes to the standard Macintosh platform for the Technology Renewal Program. We will be moving from the iMac desktop computer to the Mac Mini as the standard Macintosh platform in the program.
In our on-going efforts to explore cost-saving opportunities, we regularly evaluate the systems considered for inclusion in the Technology Renewal Program. The iMac is now considered by Apple Computer to be its standard desktop office system, while the MacPro has been positioned as their high-end graphics and video editing workstation. The iMac is a better fit, both fiscally and objectively, with the goals and purpose of Technology Renewal.
