Models

Each spring, Information Systems conducts an evaluation to determine which computers will be included in the WakeWare Program for the upcoming academic year. This evaluation consists of analysis of the device landscape, peer institution research, feedback from current students, and conversations with faculty and staff. Every year, models are selected that best meet the current needs of campus.

Stay Tuned for the 2021-2022 Lineup:
New Apples and Windows models selected for the upcoming academic year will be announced this Spring!
