Discounts on Computers and Software
Discounted Personal PC Purchases Through GovConnection
We encourage you to take advantage of the ThinkPad University program partnership between NEC and GovConnection. Contact GovConnection for pricing and details about the benefits of using this program through their web site: http://www.govconnection.com/nec or by calling (800)800-0019. You’ll need to register on the website using your 6-digit NEC ID or NEC email account.
NEC recommends purchasing additional warranty (included with this program) and premium protection with any computer you purchase to ensure you’re covered for accidental damage.
As with any PC you bring to campus, the vendor is the primary support for faulty hardware or software you buy from them. If you are unsure how to proceed with any particular computer problem contact us and we will refer you to the vendor if that is the appropriate solution.
If you’re studying Art at NEC, please contact Farid Haddad (firstname.lastname@example.org) about Art program requirements.
Faculty and staff may also take advantage of this program for personal computer purchases for home use.
