 +===== Recommended minimum hardware specs for incoming Freshman ======
 +A Laptop with:
 +  * A modern/recent quad core processor (Intel i5, i7, i9/AMD Ryzen)
 +  * 16GB of RAM (8GB Minimum)
 +  * Running Windows or Linux (Ubuntu Based Distro Preferred)
 +  * Good battery life (8+hrs, typically a battery above 40Wh)
 +    * //Gaming laptops are terrible for this//
 +  * Light enough to carry around in a backpack
 +  * Solid State Drive
 +
 +It is also recommended that the laptop is **not a Macbook** however a Macbook will work (note any ARM based Macbooks will be challenging to make work with your programming assignments).
 +
 +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.
 +Students have had *great success* with a "Business Class" Laptop, like a Lenovo ThinkPad T Series, a Dell Latitude 5000/7000 Series, HP ProBook, and System76 Laptops. If you want something that can run most games, and has great Linux compatibility, try a Dell Precision, Lenovo ThinkPad P Series, or an HP EliteBook.
 +
 +**Running a GNU/Linux Based Operating System as your main Operating System is HIGHLY recommended for all students!**
