Advice to users

Apple computers (Mac OS) are not recommended since some software may not work correctly. However, they could be used if a full Windows environment is installed, without guaranteeing full compatibility. These installations are incumbent and additional costs may be incurred.

**** HEC IT Help Desk does not offer these installation services. ****


For optimal performances, we recommend to have at least a MacBook Pro with at least 8Gb of memory (RAM) and at least 50Gb (gigabytes) of free space on your hard drive.
