Quick tips when buying computers and printers

Only buy Dell bundles. The bundles listed on the Dell Premier site (the Dell punchout on Emory Express) display the recommended, most popular systems at deeper discounts than the Dell Full Catalog. 

Avoid Dell consumer product lines (i.e.: Inspiron, Dimension). The enterprise models (i.e.: Latitude, OptiPlex) have better warranties and are less expensive in the long run.

Don't buy at a retail store with the idea of getting reimbursed later; you will usually pay more, and won't be reimbursed for sales tax

Buy HP printers from the HP link on CDW-G punchout site. The best priced  printers are listed here.

Quick Tips when buying Software

— Don't buy it if you don't have to: Microsoft Office products (Mac & PC) and OS upgrades are pre-purchased downloads available through Software Distribution for Emory corporate (not for personal) use. You can get a copy of MS Office to work at home through our Microsoft reseller at a nominal cost. Please visit:

Don't buy it in a box:  Buy a license and media instead.  For most Adobe products you can purchase a license through CDW-G (basically a license/key number) and the media (the CD) for a fraction of the cost.  You can share the media for multiple-user installations.  See Adobe and Microsoft sections at the CDW-G website.
