Laptop Requirements

For the 2023-24 school year, all students are expected to have a laptop that meets minimal specifications. They are listed here:  The minimal specifications are acceptable for Computer Science, Cybersecurity, and Information Technology majors.

Note for Mac users: MacBooks are acceptable. However, you will need to use Boot Camp or a virtualization software package to run Windows on your MacBook because some campus software and Web applications work only on Windows. Many of the newer Macs ship with Apple's new M1 chip. We have not encountered any problems with students using the newer Macs.

Recommended Specifications

  • i7 processor
  • 16 GB RAM 
  • 512 GB SSD  
  • Wireless network adapter
  • Windows 10 or 11 OS
