Is there a benefit to purchasing a laptop through the HP laptop partnership?
Alfred State has partnered with Hewlett-Packard to offer laptop recommendations to our students. Through the campus partnership with HP we can be confident that the machines offered will meet the needs of our students. These models include business class hardware and on-campus support at a discounted academic price. When purchasing a laptop through the partner program you have the ability to bring your computer to the Computer Help Desk if you encounter a hardware or software problem. As part of the laptop program when you bring your computer to the Help Desk you are eligible for a loaner to use while your laptop is being repaired. You also have the option to purchase accidental damage protection for your laptop which will cover unpredictable events including spills, drops, and other accidental damage. Before choosing a laptop for college you should visit the Laptop Required Curriculums page to see the specifications required for your curriculum.
