Fall 2018 Models

​What are the advantages of purchasing a computer through the NJIT vendor?

The Technology Support Services (TSS) provides both hardware and software support for models purchased through NJIT’s chosen vendor. Certified technicians can diagnose and repair original hardware and NJIT-licensed issues to the extent permitted by each license for these computers at no additional cost to the student so long as the warranty is current and active.

For hardware issues, our relationship with our vendor allows us to order and install warranty replacement parts directly from the manufacturer.
By default, this does not include accidentally damaged parts, but you have the option to add this coverage at the time of purchase.
For software issues, our technicians will provide assistance for problems encountered during installation of NJIT-licensed software to the extent permitted by each license. Students are ultimately responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of their own computer.

The Otto H. York Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering requires incoming first-year students to purchase a Lenovo ThinkPad P52s for use in and outside of the classroom. This laptop requirement allows your instructors to apply state-of-the-art software throughout the course of your studies at NJIT. Students will use their laptop to solve problems through programming, discuss applications of engineering, and work on engineering projects.
