IT Workstation Refresh Cycles and Upgrade Packages

UD offers some general guidelines on how often you should refresh hardware. To learn more about UD’s general recommended hardware refresh cycles for UD-owned technology used primarily by individual employees, see this document. These recommendations do not apply to equipment in labs, classrooms, public spaces, or other specialized use cases. Consult with your unit IT staff for specific information and recommendations.

You can extend the life of your existing computer (and delay buying new) by upgrading. Upgrades can extend the life of UD owned workstations, save University funds and increase IT sustainability on campus. Below you'll see some specific options for upgrade packages for HP desktops and laptops. While not all machines can be upgraded, our IT Services team is happy to provide an in depth consultation to see what options may be available and what fees may apply.

IT upgrade packages consist of the following:

  • New 240 GB solid state hard drive
  • New/Additional memory (based on available capacity)
