Laptop and software information and purchase

It is required that all PA students have a (PC) laptop computer with wireless compatibility. Your laptop must be compatible with our wireless network. The King’s College wireless network will provide service to endusers that are 802.11 b/g compliant.

** Macintosh laptops are not recommended due to incompatibilities with several online testing sites and the RMS software mentioned in the last paragraph. Any student using a MAC laptop must install Windows MS Office. This can be done by partitioning the hard drive and installing the PC software on the separate partition. If you have questions or difficulties with this you may contact the King’s IT department help desk at (570) 208-5900 ext 4357.
