Apple Options

The Information Technology Division established a "Minimum Computer Standards" supported list to improve your computing experience.  By picking a machine on the supported list you'll be getting a machine that works on the GVSU network, is fully supported by IT, and is equipped with the best security practices and ability to update security software when needed. We also have a team of hardware technicians that are certified to work on our standard line-up.

MacBook Air 13

MacBook Air 13

Please note: The MacBook Air is not recommended for everyday resource-intensive use (high CPU tasks like video or photo editing). The MacBook Air does not have a fan so under heavy CPU load the laptop may throttle performance to manage to cool. The Pro has a fan that allows it to cool the CPU without throttling down performance. The MacBook Air has only two thunderbolt ports, one of which will be used for charging – this limits the number of devices that can be simultaneously connected. MacBook Pro has three, in addition to a charge port.

iPads

If you would like to purchase an iPad with GVSU funds, please email Technology Acquisition and provide the model choice (Air, Pro, Mini, etc.), color selection, and storage size (64GB, 128GB, etc.).  iPad options can be found on the Apple website. When we receive that information, a custom quote will be created and sent to you along with the order form.

If you would like to order an iPad with cellular service, please email Telecommunications. Vice President approval is needed if this is a first time request.

 A mandatory $45 license fee will be automatically charged to all iPad purchases. All GVSU owned iPad devices will now be managed by IT. With this new service you can contact IT Services if you’ve forgotten your passcode or misplaced the device. IT will also deploy security updates to your iPad, as needed.
