I am taking online classes, and have had a rough time with computer compatibility. Every time I turn around, they change something on me.(Example: from jpg to ccms( not really, just an example). What is jpg, and all the other ones, and how can I accommodate ALL of them? I have an XP computer, and have learned that the one "to have" for my school is Windows 7. So that is on the list too. I am wanting to get a laptop so I can take it to Mom`s house next semester, so I can concentrate(rowdy kids). I want one that is reasonably fast, and that will accept every weird "bemd in the road" that modern technology has to throw at me. My school isn't one to be cooperative about "issues", so I need to be thoroughly prepared. Any suggestions,please!

Have schools stopped suggesting minimum requirements for aystem use on campus?

Have you read the current school bulletin, looking for such info?

The easiest answer of all...ask some students in your field of study...who are not freshmen.

Or your designated faculty advisor?
