IT Purchasing Advice - Students
This page gives information on suppliers and offers for students wishing to purchase a laptop for their studies. Staff wishing to purchase for use on the Trinity network in Offices and Labs must use the Staff Purchasing information.
Laptop technical requirements
If you are thinking of purchasing a laptop for use in Trinity, please be aware of the requirements for connecting to the wired or Wi-Fi networks.
In addition to this, some courses may have additional technical requirements that you should be aware of.
For example, the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering lists their laptop minimum spec recommendations on this page - Electronic Engineering Laptop recommendations.
Before purchasing a laptop, it's best to check with the course admin office, or on their website, to see if there are device requirements that you should be aware of.
Please note when a computer is purchased in conjunction with these deals, the contract remains between the student and the computer supplier. These computers will be only supported by the supplier. IT Services has no role in the subsequent maintenance or repair of these machines. Students should carefully select the type of support they require with the supplier to ensure it meets their needs and the technical requirements for connection to the Trinity network.
