ITS recognizes that different users have different needs and preferences in computer platforms and therefore offers both OS X (Apple Macintosh) and Microsoft Windows (Dell) computer options to faculty and staff. Note that certain College software systems require running Windows.

Also, “docking stations” are not available for MacBooks. Please keep these things in-mind when making your hardware choices.
