Purchasing new Windows Laptop
If you are buying a new Windows Laptop for your time at the college then please look at the minimum spec sheet below for your consideration when buying.
Ram: Minimum 8 Gigabytes
CPU/Processor: Intel I5 And the best is I7
Hard Drive: Minimum of 500 Gigabytes or 256Gb Solid state drive
Graphics Card: Most laptops have 'Onboard' Graphics which means the graphics card is built into the motherboard. its usually called 'Intel hd4000' or something similar. This is fine for all student apart from Industrial Design. Industrial Design uses software called Solidworks which doesnt work well with Intel HD Graphics. In this case an Nvidia GeForce Graphics card would be reccomended.
