Please see the chart below. The minimum specifications will work for most of the college programs. If you just need a computer for word processing, checking email and accessing the internet, a device with the minimum specifications will work for you. If your program is in technology or engineering, you may need a more powerful computer. Please check with your instructor for more information of what type of computer you will need.
