Make sure to consult your software package for recommended specs!
A computer that will run smoothly by today's standards will have three or more of the following. Please buy a current or previous year laptop to avoid possible hardware problems and to make your life much easier.
- A Processor with four or more cores aka Quad Core, Hexa Core, Octa Core etc... running at 2GHz or more. AMD Ryzen or Intel i5 and higher are recommended.
- 8GB or more of RAM is recommended. RAM is also known as Memory
- Solid State Storage aka SSD
- A dedicated PC Graphics card coming from Nvidia or AMD. - This may not be necessary for all students.
