A laptop is required as it is an integral part of the program. Mobility is also an important part of the program. You and your team may meet in different parts of campus, as well as being asked to present your final deliverables from your laptop. You are able to use one that you already own, or can purchase one from the Carnegie Mellon Computer Store or other retailers. Please see the FAQ web page for the preferred laptop configuration.
