Suggested devices

We have worked with the vendors below to provide you with a number of suggested devices that meet the Faculties' minimum 2018-19 hardware specifications in order to successfully run software for their academic program.

These laptops are a business class standard which have a number of advantages over consumer grade laptops including:

  • Structural features - business laptops often have a more rugged shell to withstand unexpected forces.
  • Matte displays - matte reflects less light making it easier to view in reflected lights and from a wider angle.
  • Battery - extended batteries can be purchased that allow for longer runtime and can be easily replaced if required.
  • Keyboard - improved keyboard provides more feedback on key actuation.
  • Pointing device - imbedded in the keyboard, the pointing device allows for more efficient typing and is more accurate than the touchpad.
