Recommended Computer Equipment?

Recommended Computer Equipment?
« on: June 23, 2005, 03:44:16 PM »
Hi everyone,

My name's Atarah, and I'll be a 1L at Pitt this fall.

I'm in the process of shopping around for a laptop computer (probably a Dell or IBM).  Does anyone know what specs and software is recommended?  The link on the law school website is outdated.

Any help is appreciated.

Check out this link:

You can get an education discount through Dell, Apple, and Gateway (

The recommended equipment link on the school of law site should connect (in july or august) to special deals on computers that the law school negotiates.  Last year's were a Toshiba, a Compaq, an IBM R-series, and a Sony.

As for me, I'm getting a mac.
