Personal Computer Recommendations

Please consider the below recommendations when purchasing a computer for use at Adams State University.

While tablets, smartphones, Chromebooks, netbooks and other mobile devices may allow for some completion of coursework, they are not guaranteed to work in all areas. If you plan to use one of these mobile devices as your primary device we recommend you utilize the Adams State computer labs to supplement your device. We now have a 24/7 computer labs that students can access and several labs that can be used remotely.  For more information on our Student Labs, please visit the link below. We use Dell and Apple computers in our student labs.
