Small Purchases/Student Purchases

  • Microsoft student + teacher discount prices through this portal: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/edu
  • In general, Apple discounts (and/or freebie hardware) for students and educators (e.g., “default edu discounts in the $100-200 range for computers”)
  • The U Bookstore can offer deeper discounts in person than on their web site

Larger Purchases/Faculty-Specific

  • “Dell has deeper discounts, but the process is more difficult to navigate.”
  • Consider asking faculty and/or support for the local rep for company X to find out about discounts and/or to see if they're interested in donating swag for student events/contests
  • U Bookstore: you can also spec hardware and ask them to quote and build it
  • “If you want your machine to be department-maintained (which I would recommend in the case of desktops/servers), then you should consult support since they'll help by suggesting hardware that is well-supported on Ubuntu”
