Computers

Recommendations: 

      • Laptop vs. Desktop: of course, a portable system is pretty useful for school, and modern laptops and desktops are priced comparatively. 
      • RAM: at least 4 GB or more of RAM. The more memory, the better the computer will run. 8 GB is a decent number, but if you are going to be editing large graphic files or videos, 16 GB is a better number.
      • Processor: It’s not necessary to invest in the fastest processor. Current processors are fast enough for most work you will be doing.
      • Storage (Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive): for normal work at school, a 256GB drive should be sufficient, unless you will be editing large graphic or video files. It’s not unusual for modern systems to come with 1TB drives. Solid State Drives are faster than Hard Disk Drives, but large SSDs are expensive.
      • External Hard Drives: useful for backup, and we strongly recommend backing up your data.
