Recommended Brands & Vendors
You may purchase a computer from any vendor. Remember to ask for potential educational discounts.
Laptop computers save desktop space and provide mobility. They are easy to transport between home and school. Most laptops come with a built-in Ethernet adapter, but if yours doesn't, you should purchase your computer with the network card pre-installed and supported by the vendor (details below). Be certain to ask your vendor if they will support your computer being placed on an Ethernet network.
The Baker computer labs are equipped with Microsoft Office 2003. Therefore, it is recommended that students also use Microsoft Office on their own computers. MS Office can often be bundled with the purchase of a new computer. Check with your computer vendor for details.
