MSUM does not have any specific minimum requirements for student-owned computers at this time. It is generally recommended that you set a budget and then do some comparison shopping to get the best computer available for the price. Since promotions frequently change pricing, it is difficult to give an accurate price/model at any given time. The following are some basic recommendations. MSUM also offers a variety of computer labs across the campus.
Note: These requirements have recently increased to meet the specifications of the new versions of Windows and Microsoft Office that are due out later this year.
Although we don't endorse any computer
vendor for personal purchases, we do pass on offers that believe will be
advantageous to the campus community.
