Software and Hardware Guide: Hardware Requirements

Hardware Requirements at UNH


Where should I buy my computer?

UNH students are encouraged to take advantage of purchasing through the UNH Computer Store to take advantage of the many benefits. Visit for additional information. UNH Departments must order through the UNH Computer Store. UNH faculty and staff are eligible to purchase Dell or Apple computers, tablets, and accessories for personal use while enjoying the educational discounts.

UNH IT strongly recommends contacting the UNH Computer Store at 603-862-1328, or the Service Desk at 603-862-4242 prior to purchasing new equipment. This way, you can feel confident the purchase is the best choice for you or your department.

What are the minimum requirements?

Hardware should be ordered to meet the requirements for needs based on individual use, the applications necessary to perform job functions, and USNH policies and best practices. Note that some schools and colleges have their own minimum requirements. 

The hardware guide is applicable to both Dell and Apple and are intended to serve as a basic guide. They may not meet the needs of every person or be applicable to every device.
