General Laptop Requirements For most students, the following laptop specifications should provide a good baseline: Operating System: We recommend Windows due to its wide compatibility with educational software. However, if you prefer another operating system, please ensure that it can run all the necessary software for your course.

This level of processor is capable of handling typical computing tasks such as browsing the internet, word processing, and basic data analysis. Memory: 8GB of RAM is the minimum recommended. Adequate RAM is crucial for multitasking and running complex applications smoothly. Storage: A 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD) is recommended. SSDs are faster and more reliable than traditional hard drives, which can significantly improve your laptop’s performance.
