Succeeding at Southern with Technology

Buying a laptop can be very difficult today, especially if you don't understand all the terminology that you would read on the tag. Below we have listed some suggestions that should serve you well while at Southern. We have also given some tips and guidelines for what to avoid when buying a computer, because our suggestions are certainly not the only good options out there.

Recently Seen Good Deal!

Not only is this laptop a workhorse, but it is a beautiful piece of technology. This Laptop will provide everything you could possibly need for school. The only downside being a lack of ports. If I was in the market for a new laptop, this is what I would be buying, especially for $300 off.

Asus VivoBook $480

This computer will be quick, look sleek, and will get the job done. The Hard Drive is smaller than average, and will likely need to be managed down the road. Screen resolution will be average, but not great.

Lenovo 330S

Processor and Ram are great, will lack some speed due to not being a Solid State Drive. However, uses Intel Optane to counteract the lack of a solid state drive. to speed up boot times and application launches.

Macbook Pro

All the bells and whistles. This is by no means necessary to complete your work at Southern, but would certainly exceed any expectations you would have from it.

Get Microsoft Office

SBTS and Boyce College faculty, staff, and students can download Office 365 for free using their SBTS email address. Get access to Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote online or install it on up to 5 PCs or Macs.

Students living in the Grinstead and Springdale Apartments will need to connect a personal router to the Seminary provided network port in order to have wireless access.
