Computer Recommendations

The Art Department uses Apple Macintosh computers almost exclusively; keep this in mind when buying a computer. Windows and Linux users may have some compatibility issues with the computers in our digital design and photography studios, though they are acceptable. Laptops are recommended for most students due to their portability and versatility. For students that plan to do more graphically intense work, a desktop computer may make sense. If you are interested in buying an Apple Macintosh computer please visit the Apple education store.
