The Next Upgrade to your Device or Computer

Below is the IT Division’s guideline regarding upgrades to Lehman-issued equipment:

There are a number of best practices that are recommended before installing upgrades.  When upgrades from any software vendor are first released, we suggest that you do not immediately apply them on College devices. The first versions can have issues that are typically corrected with subsequent releases. In addition, some College or University software may not be compatible with the updates. The Information Technology Division tests new operating systems with commonly used applications and will advise when it is OK to apply upgrades. It is also important to check if your specific hardware can effectively use the upgrade. Sometimes, the performance of devices that are considered suitable for an upgrade can be degraded if they do not have sufficient memory or hard drive space.

When you upgrade, follow the steps in this guide.
