What Kind of Computer Should I Buy for School?

Basic recommendations:

  • Processor Intel Core I3 or AMD Phenom II 910
  • RAM: 4GB 
  • Wired or Wireless Network card
  • Windows 7 or newer or Mac osX

Recommended machine (not necessary but would provide a better build for general use)

  • Processor: Intel Core I5 or AMD FX, AMD A8 or A10 series
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Wired or Wireless Network card
  • Windows 7 or newer or Mac osX 
  • (A dedicated graphics card would be beneficial for any students taking classes involving Graphic art, Video making or Auto Cad)

As always students should consult with their advisors for their various Majors for specific requirements for that major.
