 +===== Recommended minimum hardware specs for incoming Freshman ======
 +A Laptop with:
 +  * A modern/recent quad core processor
 +  * 8GB ram
 +  * Running Windows or Linux
 +  * Good battery life (~8hrs)
 +    * Gaming laptops are terrible for this
 +  * Light enough to carry around in a backpack
 +
 +It is also recommended that the laptop is not a Macbook however a Macbook will work.
 +But it is **highly** recommended that you do **not** get a gaming laptop, these are notoriously bad in battery life, compatibility with linux, weight, and size.
 +My roommate came to tech with one and despised it immediately for their workload, you do not want to have an outlet decide your seat in the class.
