* In order to have dual external monitors with a Macbook Pro, an M3 Pro or M3 Max CPU is required.
**At this time we do not recommend the Microsoft Surface Pro X due to incompatibility with current campus management software.


*At this time we do not recommend purchasing desktops as primary computers. Instead, we suggest using a laptop, docking station, and external monitor(s). This provides the same functionality as a desktop system with the added benefit of portability.
