The question we get asked most often is "should I get a Mac or PC?" In short, students should purchase a computer on the platform they are most comfortable with. Most academic programs do not have a requirement for a specific platform, but discussing this with your program director for specifics is always a good idea. Please note that Chromebooks do NOT meet our online exam software's system requirements and because of this we do NOT recommend Chromebooks.
We recommend students purchase a computer with the fastest processor, the most RAM and the largest hard drive storage they can afford, however for minimum requirements we recommend:
- i5 processor
- 8GB of RAM
- 500GB Solid State Drive (SSD)
- Wireless-AC (802.11ac)
- An Ethernet port OR an Ethernet adapter that is compatible with your computer
These specifications should satisfy most students for their entire stay at Le Moyne. A good resource when determining what computer to buy can be read here.
