The Stanford BookStore Computer Store: What's New for Fall

As Fall Quarter begins, whether you're a new student or just returning to Stanford for the new school year, be sure to drop by the Stanford Bookstore Computer Store. The Computer Store offers Stanford students, staff, faculty, and departments can purchase computer products and software at discounted prices.

The Computer Store carries a variety of items that you may want to consider:

• Hardware from Apple, IBM, Dell and Toshiba plus a host of other computer-related products from major manufacturers. To receive the best pricing, new and returning students are encouraged to make their purchases at the bookstore.

• Software at academic pricing for Macintosh and Windows-based systems from vendors such as Apple, Adobe, Borland, Macromedia, Microsoft, and Symantec.

• Peripherals and supplies such as Palm handheld devices, mobile phones, ink and toner cartridges, cables and laptop accessories.

In need of computer repairs or memory upgrades?
No problem, the Stanford Bookstore Computer Store Computer Service Center repairs Apple computers, in or out of warranty. The Computer Service Center can also facilitate non-warranty PC repairs. In addition, the Computer Service Center stocks memory modules to upgrade computer systems and offers on-campus pickup and delivery at no charge for Stanford departments. Other customers are welcome to use the drop-off window located on the main level of the Bookstore. The Computer Service Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For details, contact the Bookstore at 725-6136, extension 338.

How to Purchase
When purchasing a computer system, software or supplies through the Computer Store, individuals may pay with cash, check, or credit card. Eligibility requirements vary depending on the purchase. Please contact the Computer Store for eligibility requirements. Campus departments must use an online Standard Purchase Requisition form, which should be forwarded to Procurement. Departmental orders totaling less than $1,500 can be purchased with a Stanford Purchasing Card (VISA/MasterCard) or Rapid Purchase Order (RPO), which can be faxed (325-3476), or brought into the store and used like cash.
