As your one-stop-shop on campus for all of your technology needs, we strive each year to develop standard bundles for students of all majors based on the suggestions and experiences of our student employees and student body, at large.  Luckily, at URI, the vast majority of majors do not require any specific requirements for your personal technology and will often provide students with the necessary software or lab room access for class-specific tasks.  That allows you, as the student to have much versatility in terms of your laptop of choice.
 
The standard and professional configurations we have below as based on years of experience and expertise from our student staff to help balance price, weight, speed, and performance.  We strive on providing our community with upfront, non-commissioned, solutions for any technology need.  Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions!

 

Standard Configurations

We have created these bundles for the vast majority of majors at URI.  They provide students with a thin, lightweight, laptop for ultra-portability without compromising on performance.  We understand that one model is not for everyone, so we offer three: one for each of our favorite brands.  All three bundles also provide students with an extended, accidental, hardware warranty for peace of mind and the ability to have repairs done on campus, at our Service Center as well as Microsoft Office 2016 - Home & Student, the most popular software needed for most classes.  Finally, our Standard Configurations all include RamCare, which is our support plan that provides students with access to our loaner laptop pool, unlimited hardware labor, evening dorm-room appointments, and remote support.

Professional Configurations

For students who pursue more labor-intensive majors, and for those who simply are looking for the best peace of mind, we have developed three Professional Configurations.  These models offer students more power and features over the Standard offerings for higher level computational work such as project rendering, and media editing.  All bundles come standard with a three year accidental, hardware warranty, Microsoft Office 2016 - Home & Student, and our in-store support plan, RamCare.
