Recommended Computer Models
ResNet announces computer recommendations for specific Apple and HP computer models for Saint Mary's students each July to help make your purchasing decisions easier.
We recommend specific MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models from Apple, and specific ProBook and EliteBook models from Dell.
By waiting until the summer to buy a computer for college, you will be able to take advantage of educational discounts, new hardware and software available, and special "Back to School" sales our vendors offer.
