Notebook PC

Notebook PCs offer comparable performance to desktops in a much smaller form factor. Modern notebooks generally have 13" or 15" displays with a widescreen format, although some 17" laptops are designed as desktop replacements and are too heavy to be conveniently portable. Notebooks are appropriate primary computers for most users and have similar processor speeds and RAM/hard drive capacities as desktops.

Notebooks can be purchased for as little as $500.00, although the price point of Northwestern's recommended configurations starts closer to $1,000.00.

NUIT's laptop purchasing guidelines regarding memory and disk space should be considered when purchasing a notebook PC.
