While the computer of choice for many students is trending toward Macbooks, before you head out to get a computer for your student, some of the colleges have specific requirements that differ from general recommendations. Check your individual college and degree program hardware and software requirements as you may find that a Dell, Microsoft Surface Pro or HP may better serve your student’s needs. Microsoft Surface has a great price, any hp is great. If you want to make a little more of an investment, the Apple Macbook Air and Apple Macbook Pro are highly recommended. A lot of students also bring tablets/ Ipads to class and are great for note-taking.
