 +===== 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.
