Texas A&M University-Kingsville


All students enrolling in select College of Business Administration courses must have in-class access to a laptop computer with the following minimum capabilities:

  • Processor: Dual Core 2.5GHz or faster processor

  • Operating System Windows 7* 

  • Software: Microsoft Office Up-to-date virus protection

  • Memory: 3 GB RAM 

  • Hard drive with 160 GB

  • Multi-media drive: CD/DVD burner 

  • Webcam with integrated microphone 

  • Network interface: 10/100/1000 Gigabyte Ethernet 

  • Wireless capability: 802.11n compatible 

  • Battery: extended life battery**

*If you already have a computer with Windows Vista, this also will meet the requirement.

**You should have two batteries, or one battery with at least 6 hours of capacity since not all classrooms have electrical plug-ins.

Your laptop goes where you go!

You can access team members, course information, library resources, or the Internet from your home, classroom, dorm, or favorite corner café. You can even use it to take online courses when you’re completing an internship or studying abroad.
