ASCTech Standard Computers

Overview

Any computer equipment purchase on university funds (including research/grant funding) should be vetted through ASCTech before purchase, ASCTech is happy to consult, configure, and place orders. This will ensure equipment is configured and inventoried according to University and Department policies, prior to usage.

All Lenovo products are purchased through Buckeye Buy. Lenovo standards come from CDW, please consult with ASCTech for custom configs. ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, ThinkPad, and ThinkPad Mobile Workstation are the OSU product lines. (Note: The ThinkBook, Legion, Loq, Slim, Yoga, IdeaCenter, and IdeaPad brands are not standard as these are more consumer grade.)

All Dell products are purchased through Buckeye Buy. Dell standards come from CDW, please consult with ASCTech for custom configs. OptiPlex, Latitude, and Precision Workstation are the OSU product lines. (Note: The XPS and Alienware brands are not standard as these are more consumer grade. There are Latitudes with similar specs, such as the 9440.)

All Apple products must be purchased through Tech Hub. Please note that not all items in the Tech Hub Departmental Pricing Guide are supported by ASCTech. Prices are subject to change. If you have questions, please contact ASCTech, we will be happy to help find what best fits your needs.

Accessories / Printers

Please reach out to ASCTech for assistance with any accessories needed for the new computer, such as monitors, USB-C port replicators, cameras, docking stations, etc.

Printers

ASCTech does not have standard printers.

  • ASCTech encourages Follow Me Printing to the unit Xerox machines. https://uniprint.osu.edu/follow-me-printing
  • ASCTech encourages reaching out to your unit’s ASCTech contact if you want guidance as to what is compatible.
    • In Workday hardware approvers only do a basic check that the printer has Ethernet and doesn't have major red flags like requiring a web account (HP e series).
    • Thus we assume the non-ASCTech requestor has done research or contacted ASCTech.
    • Your ASCTech unit lead can provide more information and recommendations.
  • Networking:
    • Printers must have a wired network port.
    • Fallback for networking issues will be direct USB hookup.
    • iPads can only print to Follow Me Print printers.
  • ASCTech does not do maintenance on printers:

Warranties

ASC Computer Replacement Program Computers

Note, standard computers from the ASC Computer Replacement Program have a minimal warranty, as we stock spares. If a replacement computer has a hardware issue we will take an equivalent machine from spares, which may be new or a repaired machine. This will become your machine so you do not have to restore files a second time.

Lenovo Warranty

All Lenovos include a Premier 4 year on site warranty. Standard laptops include accidental damage protection by default, but check with ASCTech - though it is included by default some people opt out of accidental damage or have us obtain custom quotes without. ASCTech does not recommend accidental damage on desktop machines.

Dell Warranty

All Dells include a Basic 4 year on site warranty. Since late 2020: Standard laptops include accidental damage protection by default, but check with ASCTech - though it is included by default some people opt out of accidental damage or have us obtain custom quotes without. ASCTech does not recommend accidental damage on desktop machines.

Dell ExpressCharge batteries have a one year warranty.

Dell also has a ProSupport warranty, however for desktops and laptops the extra cost is rarely worth it. (See attached chart.)
