[Micronet] JACS updates for Apple & Dell; CDW-G contact

Petersen, Joanne

Here are the latest JACS (Joint Academic Computing Standards) updates:


APPLE:  JACS models are shown as “Recommended for you” models at the bottom of the Home page of the punch-out. 

-        All JACS models are configurable after you load the model into your cart and click the “Configure” button.

-        Pricing as shown on the Home or model page is not correct; the correct (lower) price will appear in your cart.  We’re working with Apple to fix the discrepancy and show the lower price on the Home and model pages.

·        New iMacs models: faster processors, Iris Pro/NVIDIA GeForce 700 graphics, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, all leading to faster performance than the previous generation. 

·        MacBook models: 256 GB minimum hard drives and 8 GB memory are the default now. 

·        MacBook Pro 13" was removed as a JACS model.  The 15” models with and without Retina display (RD) remain.

·        MacBook Air 11" was added as a JACS model along with the 13.3” Air.  Both have updated 1.3GHz dual-core Intel i5 Haswell processors for improved performance.



·        Changes made to defaults: webcams in all laptops, 8 GB memory, 256 GB hard drives.

·        6430U ultraportable laptop has a wireless docking station (D5000) which requires the 1601 WiGig card.  The 6430U will NOT work with the Dell E-docking stations.

·        9020 will be replacing 9010 as the JACS standard desktop.

·        We are investigating the 7xxx series laptops as future replacements for the 6xxx series.


This is not JACS, but still worthwhile knowing:



·        If you find a better price at another vendor for CDW-G’s computer accessories or peripherals as shown in their punch-out, please contact Paul Cardamone, [hidden email], to obtain a comparable quote, providing the item is the same (not refurbished or different configuration). 


If you have any questions regarding JACS or procurement of IT hardware, please let me know!
