A CBIS supported computer is a machine that is owned by the University of Chicago and leased to a user for a certain amount of time. These leases expire every three years.
Leasing a computer is often a more economical option than buying a new machine for an employee. Another leasing advantage is that in the case of hardware failure, spare equipment will be provided.
