When the NinerTech Store was launched in 2009, its founding principle was to be a leading provider of service to the campus. Now, in its third year of operation, our commitment to this principle has not wavered. Operating as a nonprofit arm of the university, NinerTech concentrates on providing services that are unique, exemplary, and irreplaceable.
College life has many challenges, equal parts academic, social, and professional. Providing a complete package to equip students for all those tasks is a challenge that we strive to meet. With a combination of Apple, HP, and Dell computers and peripheral products, NinerTech has a solution for every need.
If a problem with your equipment arises, we’ll provide the support you’ll need to get you back up and running in no time. NinerTech’s Certified Technician can fix Apple, HP and Dell systems (depending on warranty status and location of purchase, for questions call ahead!). Our loaner laptop program ensures that you need not go without a computer while yours is being serviced. And should you have a question about how to get the most out of your machine, our team of knowledgeable staff members more often than not can get you the answer you need. College is stressful enough; let NinerTech take at least one thing off your mind!
Why should we buy a new computer?
While the old family computer has certainly been a dependable machine, it has not been tested by the rigors of college life. Buying your student a new computer is certainly the best choice to make. No longer an accessory used occasionally; computers are necessary for nearly every class for a wide variety of projects ranging from typing papers and creating presentations to recording videos and watching lectures. Today's computers offer both the software and hardware to make these activities not only possible, but also professional.
What computer should I buy for my major?
While most majors at UNC Charlotte do not have specific guidelines for the type of computer required, it is recommended that you meet with your advisor or instructors to see what they recommend. UNC Charlotte faculty members are very knowledgeable concerning the state of technology in their chosen fields, and they can inform you about the specific requirements, software, and peripherals you’ll need to make your college experience both productive and enjoyable.
Will a Mac work and why should I buy from NinerTech ?
Not only will Macs work on campus, they perform great. Mac OS X is extremely secure, with almost no threat from viruses and spyware. The same people who design the hardware for Apple also design OS X, so everything on a Mac works together, seamlessly. Microsoft Office 2011 is also available for Mac, so productivity is now part of the Mac experience as well. The NinerTech Store carries the full line of Mac computers; stop in and take one for a test ride.
Should I buy a laptop or a desktop computer?
We recommend purchasing a laptop computer for a couple of reasons. First, laptops are completely contained within themselves. There is no external keyboard, monitor, mouse or tower to take up space in a dorm room or apartment. This frees up the limited space for all of your other stuff. Secondly, laptops are portable. You can take them with you to class, the food court, and anywhere else you need to be productive and creative.
