**Attention: The City of Hampton has now transitioned to HP's for City Employee PC Orders
IT recommends that all pc's on the network be under warranty, to provide you with the best response possible if a technical problem occurs. The City purchases 4-year warranties for all HP equipment. Therefore IT recommends that departments plan to replace their pc's on a 4-year cycle.
We offer 3 standard models as shown below. Each has options, such as memory, monitor quantities and sizes, docking stations, etc. Typical prices are shown below. Please note that MS Office licenses are not included in these price ranges:
$740 to $1,300 each (monitor not included)
$1,060 to $1,800 each
WorkStation for GIS/other applications that require non-standard processors:
$1,500 and up each (monitor not included)
$150 and higher
$300.86 for Standard (Outlook, Word, Excel, & PowerPoint)
$409.34 for Professional (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher)
Determine your budget, the types of computers you need (desktop, laptop, workstation), and the quantity of each. Include the size monitor you need, the quantity, and any other details. If you are unsure, include your questions in your email to him.
You may see other offers which appear to be better deals than what is available from the State contract. Our systems come with standard 4-year warranties compared to a typical 1-year warranty in the home market. They are rated for business use rather than personal/home use, which means the components are sturdier than most home market pc's. Further, many retail offers are quoted with home versions of the operating system and various business software packages, and are not licensed for/compatible with our network.
If you have questions about the process or would like us to investigate a specific offer, please email the IT Helpdesk with that question and we will be happy to assist.
