What should I buy - PC or Mac?
With the increasing delivery of content via the web browser, especially via Canvas and Infinite Campus, any PC (laptop) or Macbook should be adequate. The use of a modern Browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) should be all that is needed for most uses. If the student wants or needs the use of the Microsoft Office Suite that may also be a consideration and those applications are available for both PC and Macbooks. If there are any special purpose applications required, that may sway the choice one way or the other, but for general purpose use either should suffice.
