Computer Recommendations

The School of Art does not have a laptop requirement, and provides Apple desktop computers in all of the Digital Labs for use by students enrolled in studio courses. Windows and Linux users may have some compatibility issues with the computers in our digital design and photography studios, though they are acceptable. For students that do want to purchase their own computers, laptops are recommended 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 computer please visit the Apple education store.
