Laptop Requirements

In order to successfully participate in the summer school each student should bring a laptop. The minimum requirements are:

  • relatively recent (e.g. max. 3 to 4 years old)
  • at least 4GB RAM
  • a wifi card
  • at least a few GB of free disk space
  • one of the following operating systems: Windows 7 or 8 (and probably 10); Mac OS X; any recent Linux distribution

The cleaner your installation is, the better (i.e. try to remove unnecessary applications). Please double check if your laptop is free of viruses and/or malware (several free virus scanners can be found on the internet, e.g. Microsoft Security Essentials).

If you are not sure if your laptop fits these requirements, if you can't bring a laptop, or if you have other questions, please contact us as soon as possible.
