Should I buy a Mac or Windows computer? Laptop or tablet?

Purchasing a laptop is recommended; it’s an all-around utility device for running software, writing papers and entertainment. Tablets should be looked at as an accessory.

UB is primarily a Windows campus, so our best support is available for Windows PCs. We do also fully support Macs, however, and see the number of Mac devices growing each year.
