The Laptop program includes:

  • Laptops pre-configured for UAB. TechConnect Laptops are selected to meet or exceed the recommendations from UAB IT and the academic areas. Each one comes ready for use at UAB and includes the main required software and access to UAB services and network. In some cases, TechConnect has worked with individual schools to include additional software to support that school's unique requirements.
  • On-campus service and support. Assistance with setup, software installs, WiFi network setup and coordination of warranty hardware repairs comes with each TechConnect Laptop.
  • Loaner laptops. Students with TechConnect Laptops needing prolonged service will be provided a loaner laptop to use until their laptop is returned. (Should loaner demand exceed supply, a wait list will be maintained to provide a loaner as quickly as one becomes available.)
  • Extended hardware warranty. A three-year manufacturer's hardware warranty comes with each TechConnect Laptop.
  • Full service warranty. Warranty hardware support for your TechConnect Laptop is covered off campus as well. TechConnect Laptops can be repaired by any certified Dell vendor in the United States.
  • Accidental damage protection. TechConnect Laptops come with three-year manufacturer's damage protection, which covers repair or replacement for liquid spills, drops, falls, electrical surges, damaged or broken LCD due to a drop or fall.
