Since you have access to a computer lab that meets all your computing needs, having a personal computer is not necessary; however, if you are interested in having your own computer, here are some things to consider:
- Desktops allow you to work comfortably from your residence hall room or apartment.
- Desktops are generally less expensive than laptops.
- Laptops are versatile if you would like to get away from your room to work, and they take up less space.
If you do plan to purchase a new computer, consult Telecommunications Services for computer specifications to ensure that your machine is properly equipped for Resnet, the on-campus internet service.
