These Recommended specifications are for students purchasing a new device for use at the college. A device that does not meet these specifications may have issues operating in the school environment, check the "Other Devices" page for details.

Standard laptop

A laptop for word processing, web content and Windows Applications at the college and at home.

  • Windows 10
  • Wi-Fi 802.11n/ac or better (5Ghz compatible)
  • 10" or larger screen
  • 4GB or more RAM
  • 128GB or more SSD storage.
  • 8 hours or higher advertised battery life.

A Laptop for a senior student also capable of running Visual Arts and Autodesk Graphics software at the college and home.

  • Windows 10
  • Wi-Fi 802.11n/ac or better (5Ghz compatible)
  • 12" or larger screen
  • 4GB or more RAM
  • 256GB or more SSD storage
  • Intel i3 processor (or equivalent) or better
  • 8 hours or higher advertised battery life.

Laptop warranty and accidental damage protection

Many laptops only come with 1 year "return to site" warranty as base. We highly encourage you purchase a three year warranty with Accidental Damage Protection (ADP). This will ensure your device lasts three years. ADP policies vary on the excess charged and the types of damage that are covered. We recommend that you carefully review the company's ADP policy to see if it is worth purchasing ADP for your device.

Accessories

Case

We highly recommend always keeping your device in a case when it is not being used.

Hard cases (Often called "EVA Cases") offer the best protection against drops and water spills.

Mouse

Consider bringing a wired mouse to school as an alternative to a laptop touchpad.

We do not recommend wireless mice as they can interfere with each other in close proximity.
