Recommended Systems

OC students are required to have a laptop computer that can run Mac OS X Lion or later, and/or Windows 7 or later, to ensure compatibility with software and functionality needed in some courses. The laptop students use as part of the "Bring Your Own Device" program should also support one of these standard web browsers: Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, or Chrome.

Students majoring in Art & Design or Engineering are strongly encouraged to ensure their machines have at least 8 GB of RAM as well as Microsoft Windows. (For Apple users, Microsoft Windows will be provided at no cost to the student for installation using Boot Camp).

On-site certified hardware repair is available for machines purchased through these recommended vendors.
