Apple Mac computers are increasingly common on the Lehigh campus.
The typical productivity software used by faculty and staff, such as Lehigh email, Google Suite and Microsoft Office, operate similarly on Mac and Windows. However, some administrative tasks that rely on Microsoft Access, such as Desktop Finance, cannot be performed in macOS natively.
There are several alternatives to add Windows capability to a Mac so that you have access to both Mac software and Windows software. LTS recommends using Virtual Software to access Lehigh-licensed Windows applications from macOS. Computing consultants can provide additional guidance for specific situations.
Lehigh's Purchasing Dept prefers Proposals/Quotes be attached to a Purchase Requisition.
Proposals for institutional purchases can be created on Apple's ecommerce site. Proposers may create an AppleID for this purpose (recommended) or Request Access to Lehigh's account page via myaccess.apple.com (choose Lehigh University, "AP" as your Location.) See Step-by-step instructions (PDF) provided by Apple. Purchasers can also call 800-800-APPL for assistance.
Lehigh recommends Apple's 3-year "AppleCare+" warranty for computers. Limited accidental damage protection is provided with AppleCare+ (see details.)
Check the Warranties page for further information and hardware repair procedures.
