Buying a computer and computer accessories
When you are going to buy a computer, we recommend you to connect it to PC.LU.SE and MAC.LU.SE, which are university-wide, modern, secure and user-friendly computer platforms based on Windows 10 and the latest macOS.
When you're connected to these platforms, you'll get automatic updates, security settings, and firewalls. Backup automatically syncs your work folders. The hard drive is encrypted using BitLocker, so your data and files remain confidential, and your computer complies with the laws governing research or student data on university computers.
Applications are easily installed via Software Center (PC) or Self Service (Mac) if you are connected to the platforms.

Exchanges, returns, complaints
Computers and computer accessories purchased through Med IT are covered by installation and service of pc.lu.se and mac.lu.se, respectively, as well as returns, warranty and repair.
Med IT does not handle purchases, exchanges, returns or complaints for computers, accessories, office printers, mobile phones, tablets or consumables that are not on the order page. If you purchased computers and accessories on your own through Lupin, Med IT can only provide limited support, such as help with mac.lu.se and pc.lu.se.
Work computers older than five years
Older computers cost more to repair and it is usually more cost and time effective to order a new one. We therefore recommend that computers older than five years that are broken or have poor capacity and performance are replaced with new ones. This does not apply to lab computers.
