Our curriculum consists of many instructions and software packages that work seamlessly with OS X and Linux, but not (directly) with Windows.
We generally recommend a Mac laptop since it has the best support system, and our instructors all use Macs. We recommend a minimum of 8GB of RAM and a quad-core processor released in the last few years. However, it is possible, and many have done so, to complete the program with lower spec computers.
If you cannot use a Mac laptop, you will need to install and learn to use Linux on your hardware of choice.
