There are no specific or minimum computer requirements for Nursing.
This means any standard configuration laptop should suit your college needs. However, you may need to partition your drive using "Boot Camp" in order to run Windows on your Mac. In this case, you may look into a model that has a fast processor (2.5GHz Intel Core i5 or higher) and larger storage capacity (256GB or higher).
We recommend looking into the 13" MacBook Pro or 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display. We offer all computers at education discounted prices. Since each of these models has something great to offer, we have broken down the features of each to make it easier for you to choose the best model for your preference. Also be sure to check out our great Aggie Bundle deals!
Please note: these are only suggestions to help you choose the best Mac to suit your needs. It is still suggested for students to meet with their academic advisor to make sure you satisfy your individual program's needs.
13" MacBook Pro - Lots of Storage Capacity
With a 500GB hard drive, the 13" MacBook Pro is great for students who have lots of photos, videos, and music.

The 13" MacBook Pro comes standard with a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000, and has a 7-hour battery life.
