Apple Laptop Hardware

General Recommendations

We will support all current versions of Apple hardware with the latest two versions of Mac OS X.

We recommend purchasing AppleCare to extend the warranty on the hardware to 3 years. It is difficult for ITS to repair some Apple Hardware because many of the models have sealed cases. We also encourage purchasing enough memory up front to cover 5 years of service, it is costly to upgrade most of the models after it is shipped.

 

The MacBook Pro is our recommendation for a daily use Apple laptop. We encourage upgrading the Hard Drive to a Solid State Disk to help ensure optimal performance.

The MacBook Air is recommended only as an ultra-light secondary computer.

 

*We do not recommend purchasing Apple Hardware to solely run Windows due to cost, security, and support reasons.
