What about Macintosh laptops?

The MSA graduate program does not allow Macintosh laptops.  All students must have a Windows-based laptop to run curriculum software (there is no Macintosh-based counterpart for some applications).  Although some Macs are capable of running a virtualized Windows environment, it is not recommended for performance issues and it is not compliant with the computer requirements.
