Supported Hardware

The APS IT group supports a wide variety of computer hardware and peripherals. However, users are required to purchase hardware that has been tested and verified as compatible with our support tools and infrastructure. This page provides a list of the hardware that is currently supported.

Standard PC desktops (for use with Windows and Linux) are usually available int the APS stockroom. Monitors, hard drives, and some other periperal hardware is also available. Check with the stockroom to find out what is currently available.

If you think you need a particular computer platform that is not currently on the list, check with IT Support to see if it can be supported. However, there must usually be valid justification for using something other than a supported platform.
