    *Many departments (e.g., Engineering and Business) require Microsoft Windows for applications which are not available for Apple computers. If you purchase a Mac, you must partition your hard drive with Bootcamp, Parallels, or VMWare and then install Windows before starting class. See the JourneyEd link in DrexelOne for availability of partitioning software and Windows. Check with your department for specific requirements before purchase.
