Supported Desktop & Laptop Computer Hardware

Last updated on 9/2/2021

SUU IT maintains a list of supported hardware to ensure a consistent level of quality support. IT has negotiated special pricing and support arrangements with our PC vendor (presently Dell) and Apple for Mac devices. Anything purchased outside of the list below will not be supported. Non-standard equipment will not be allowed on the campus network and there will be no resources available to troubleshoot issues, repair hardware, install software, etc.

Current supported desktop list and operating systems (2021-2022 school year)

Current supported notebook list and operating systems (2021-2022 school year)

Current supported Mac Computers

Most Intel-based and M1 Macs that are capable of running macOS 10.15 (Catalina) or newer will be supported. This includes:

Departments ordering new computers should consult with their IT contact prior to placing an order. IT can assist in obtaining quotes for equipment that meets campus standards, including the criteria established above. IT can also assist departments in establishing a replacement cycle and with the cascading of existing equipment.

Supported Printer Hardware (Computer Labs and Faculty/Staff Offices)

Due to the ever changing variety of printers available on the market, the IT department does not maintain a list of supported printers. However, many printers are not compatible with the SUU network environment, even if they have a network card built-in. Departments should coordinate printer purchases with their IT support person to ensure compatibility and supportability.

Note: Computers purchased through SUU Surplus will not be supported by the SUU IT department.
