Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I want to buy one of the standard Dell bundles but need more memory or a bigger hard drive. What should I do?

A: Email csg@med.cornell.edu to request a quote with the modifications desired.  The pre-configured bundles are set with options that allow for faster shipping.  While things like hard drive and memory can be upgraded, there will be an additional cost and will require 2-3 weeks to configure.

Q: I want to purchase a Lenovo (i.e., the X1 Carbon). How can I purchase it?

A: Email csg@med.cornell.edu and a purchasing specialist will contact you to discuss your options.  At this time Lenovo systems are not available using our new vendor, ePlus, and as such will not be eligible for the 8-day ship option.  The Lenovo X1 Carbon is still considered an ITS standard device and can be purchased through CDW-G. However, these systems may require additional configuration by ITS before they can be connected (may not be eligible for our two day connect process).

Q: How do I purchase a workstation (i.e., a Dell Precision)?

A: Email csg@med.cornell.edu and a purchasing specialist will contact you to discuss your options.
