for 2021 suggest students consider a 256GB hard drive, a 10th gen Intel i5 or Apple M1 processor, and 8GB Ram as minimum requirements. Recommended specs include upgrades to a 10th Gen Intel i7 processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a 3 year accidental damage warranty. In addition a 512GB hard drive and 16GB RAM are
