ITR Computer Recommendations

  • Access to a personal computer with Internet capability and Microsoft Office compatible software is required for many courses at Neumann. You may use a computer in one of the University's computer labs, a family computer or a friend's, but we recommend that each student have their own computer meeting the following specifications:


    Minimum and Recommended configuration:

    • Processor: speed of at least 400 MHz; 1 GHz or better is recommended. 

    • RAM: at least 256 Mb of RAM; 1 GB or more is recommended

    • Sound: A working sound card and speakers are useful. Some programs require a headset & microphone. 

    • Modem: For online programs, a 56 Kbps modem can be used. A high-speed connection such as DSL or cable modem is recommended.

    • Disk Drive: A CD- or DVD-Rom drive is useful for software installation and program materials. A DVD/RW is recommended for media production courses.

    • Monitor: minimum 800 x 600 resolution is required; 1024 x 768 or better recommended. 

    • Disk Space: 10 GB of disk space minimum; 60 GB or more recommended.

    • Networking: 10/100 Mb Ethernet adapter; WiFi wireless for laptops

    • Software: MS Office 2007 is the standard productivity suite on campus.


    • Earlier versions of MS Office are acceptable with the free Office Compatibility Pack.

    • Open source and commercial suites (Open Office, Lotus Symphony, Corel Office Suite) can generally produce acceptable documents, but are not supported by the Neumann University Help Desk.

    • The latest MS Office can be purchased inexpensively; see: Information on computer and software purchases.
