Laptop Requirement

The Maine Business School requires all business students to have a personal laptop. It can be a MAC or PC, though a PC is preferred. You do not need to buy a new laptop if you already have one, but it must meet the minimum requirements below:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5
  • Memory: 8 GB of RAM, 16 GB is recommended
  • Storage: 256 GB solid-state drive (SSD)
  • Updated Operating System: Windows 11 and MacOS 14: Sonoma
  • Download Microsoft 365 for free by clicking on this icon in your student portal launchpad

Some tablets (e.g. iPad) may not fit these requirements. If you have a question about our laptop policy, please contact the Maine Business School Advising Center at or 207.581.1997.
