Laptop Programs:

The school doesn't really offer free laptops for the students, but SNHU students can take advantage of some discounts from Dell and Apple. SNHU and Dell have teamed up to offer you the benefit of participating in the Dell University Program. Student discounts are also available from Apple. Software: Microsoft Office is required for all students. Office 365 is available to all students for free.

Extended Service: The Dell laptops in this program come with a 1 year limited warranty plus 1 year of accidental damage service. We strongly recommend that you purchase the 4 year warranty and the 4 year accidental damage service, or choose a plan that matches the length of time you expect to keep the laptop. The accidental damage service is particularly useful as it can take care of items not covered under the warranty including drops, power surges, screen breaks, and spills. The top three repair requests we see are broken screens, malware/virus removal, and liquid damage (spills). Broken screens and liquid damage are not covered under a regular warranty but require accidental damage coverage.

If you purchase a brand other than Dell, accidental coverage may be available under a different name. Ask the reseller you are dealing with for details.

If your laptop requires service, bring it to the Technology Help Desk in the Wolak Library Learning Commons. Help Desk staff are certified to perform warranty repairs on Dell and Apple computers. For other brands, the Help Desk can perform limited service and any warranty repairs would be your responsibility to arrange.
