Almost any new computer purchased today from one of the leading computer manufacturers should be more than adequate for basic student use on campus. If your specific needs are more demanding (for example, if you use computer graphics development software, video capture, etc.), then you'll want to make sure that you purchase a faster system that has more memory and storage space. Please check with your appropriate advisor to determine if you require a faster system.
If you intend to connect your computer to ResNet, you need to purchase a computer that is designated "Ethernet Ready". If your computer is not Ethernet Ready then you will not be able to access network-based services. Ethernet Ready computers must include either an Ethernet card or a wireless network card.
