Student Laptop Minimum Requirements

Warnell does not recommend a specific brand or model of laptop. Instead, we have compiled a list of important computer components and our recommended minimum specifications. Warnell does not provide service for student laptops so a maintenance plan or extended warranty may also be helpful.

When purchasing your laptop, any modern ‘gaming’ laptop is appropriate where a better CPU and more RAM will deliver a superior computing experience. Tablet style devices like the iPad, any of the Android tablets, and the Chromebook are not suitable for many of the intensive computing tasks you will be asked to perform.

In addition to a computer, you will probably need a small flash drive to transfer files and some form of backup storage (device or cloud).

Component Recommended Minimum Specification
Windows OS Windows 10 Pro or newer
Mac OS* OS X 10.13 or newer *
Processor i7, (7th, 8th gen., +), i9 or AMD Ryzen 5 or newer
Memory 16GB+
Video/Graphics card 256MB or higher
Hard drive 250GB (SSD preferred) for programs, 2TB for data
Optical drive Not required
Networking Gigabit ethernet and wireless 802.11 (g, n, and/or ac)         
External ports At least one USB 3.0
Touch screen Not necessary

*Please note that many of the software packages you will use while enrolled at Warnell are for Windows only. If you decide to purchase a Mac, you must use software virtualization (VMWare Fusion, Virtual Box, or Parallels) to install a copy of Windows inside IOS (a license for the Windows operating system can be obtained through the University at a deep discount).

ArcGIS Training

  • Under our UGA ESRI site license, students have access to ESRI's Virtual Campus. Here, you can enroll in online ArcGIS courses that are self-instructed and self-paced. This is an excellent way to get up to speed with ArcGIS (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcToolbox, etc). Here is a list of courses available to us.
  • If you see a class that you are interested in, send Geoff Garland ( an email requesting an "ESRI Virtual Campus class login code". You should include the course title from the link above and inform him you are a student currently enrolled at Warnell. This is available to faculty and staff also.
  • Also, ESRI offers a 1-year timeout version of ArcView 9.2 to students for educational purposes. Unlike the software we get under the University of Georgia ESRI Site License, students can install this on their personal computer. For students who are interested in this program, get your professor to submit a request to ESRI.
  • If you have questions, contact Tripp Lowe at 706-542-1074 or
