Powerful laptops aren't just for gaming. If you're a computer science, engineering, or math major, then you'll need the extra power these machine provides. This laptop packs ridiculous power into a thin frame. For maximum performance select an option with six cores, at least 16GB RAM, and a dedicated graphics card - your simulations, CAD, and machine learning algorithms will be humming along. Keep an eye on the weight - it's hard to get a high performance laptop less than 4 pounds because each extra option you add will also add weight. You're going to be lugging that thing around campus so try to keep it as low as possible - while still getting the performance you want!

Notice for Pre-Interior Design students:
Pre-Interior Design (INDX) students do not have any specific technology requirements beyond the standard College of Human Sciences laptop requirements listed above. Those students who are admitted to the Interior Design (INDS) program will have specific hardware and software requirements for the major. These requirements will be emailed to students at their official auburn.edu email address in May, following completion of their INDX sequence and well in advance of the Fall term in which they will begin INDS courses.
