If you want to buy a computer for coming to Eastern, we don’t have any particular recommendation when it comes to brand, however it should be noted that a Chromebooks and iPads are not  computers, they run smart phone operating systems and aren’t capable of all that a computer needs to do. If a you have some experience with either Mac or PC, you should choose one you are comfortable with, there’s no need to add the stress of learning a new system with all the other new responsibilities you will have.  There is no need to buy MS Office Software, Eastern gives you MS Office at no cost. We also have a student IT Orientation site that lists some of the IT services and information you will need to get started at Eastern.
