 Buying a Computer or Monitor

If you have a need to purchase a computer and/or monitor, follow this How To Guide to search the registry for EPEAT products.

The Ames Laboratory preferred computer brands are DELL, Apple, ASUS, and Microsoft. If another brand is preferred, please contact the purchasing office.

On your purchase requisition, indicate the grade of EPEAT (e.g. Gold, Silver, Bronze). and whether it's ENERGY STAR  rated. If it's not EPEAT graded or ENERGY STAR rated, a justification will be required from the requester and reviewed by Purchasing.
