Introduction

LAITS determines Minimum Computer Hardware Standards as well as Recommended Models. We also have a list of Optional Accessories.

For Printer Recommendations, see our LAITS Printer Recommendations page.

Adhering to these Standards prevents the following issues:

  • No Encryption due to lack of TPM Chip
    • Encryption is required by the State
  • Long lead time to prepare non-standard computer



Recommended Models

These are the models we recommend for each use listed in the left column, with the standard models highlighted in green. There will duplicate recommendations due to overlapping needs. A PDF version of the Recommended Models is available on Box. All costs are subject to change.

Any model that is not on this list requires evaluation and approval by the Lifecycle Manager before being purchased.

**Note about dual displays with the Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Dock: At least one display has to be Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 technology-ready. For displays that are not Thunderbolt technology-ready, the Thunderbolt port is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort. The dock supports either HDMI or Mini DisplayPort, but not both. We are working on another recommendation.
