Whether you’re a STEM major or studying liberal arts, or even if you’re still undecided, Mac has the power to take on any course load. It’s portable, durable, and versatile enough to handle whatever you love to do after class, too. And it’s designed to grow with you, during your time on campus and beyond. So you’re ready for everything college — and life — have to offer.
Top of its class in performance.

The Apple mouse makes it easy to navigate with smooth scrolling, and the Magic mouse features a multitouch surface with gesture support. You can add extra storage for your MacBook, transfer large files between work and home, or back up important data with a Mac external hard drive.
Whatever your field of study, Mac can more than handle it. Create particle simulations faster than ever with cutting-edge graphics, high-performance processors, and whip-smart storage. Design and render intricate 3D models in programs like Autodesk Maya. View it all on a high-resolution Retina display that provides sharp text and is perfect for examining or creating detailed diagrams and technical illustrations. And with all-day battery life, Mac keeps crunching numbers late into the night.
Built to withstand the heaviest course loads.
Mac is built to last. And last. The sturdy aluminum unibody design is sleek, durable, and ready to hold up to the rigors of college life. It’s razor thin and feather light, so no matter where your schedule takes you, Mac can carry you through your day — without having to carry much in your backpack. And with optional AppleCare, you can rest assured that you’re covered if you ever need service or support.
We made compatibility a prerequisite.
In addition to creating and collaborating with classmates on amazing work using free Apple-designed apps for productivity and creativity, you can run popular software like Microsoft Office, Mathematica, and AutoCAD. Need to use a Windows app like SOLIDWORKS? No problem. Mac runs Windows at native speeds using Boot Camp, a built-in utility.
Make connections all over campus.
Mac is designed to connect seamlessly to college networks, shared printers, and other campus devices. You can easily log in to learning management systems and even PC networks. And with AirDrop, you can instantly send a photo for a presentation, class notes, documents, and more to nearby Mac, iPad, and iPhone users.
Incredible on their own. Even better together.
Having one Apple device is great. But when you use Apple devices together it opens up a world of new opportunities. Create a sketch in the Notes app on your iPad and paste it into a Pages document on your Mac. Shoot video on your iPhone and edit it on your iPad. You can even extend your workspace on your Mac by using your iPad as a second display. The possibilities are limitless.
Your extracurriculars become extra spectacular.
As terrific as Mac and iPad are for your studies, they’re just as amazing for everything you do outside of class. Shoot and edit a short film on the quad, sketch a work of art using Apple Pencil and iPad, or play a huge range of cutting-edge games in Apple Arcade. With tons of choices to discover new passions or learn new skills the App Store is sure to have an app for whatever you love to do.
