Apple macOS High Sierra: Don't Upgrade Yet
Posted by Andrew McAllister on 25 September 2017 03:59 PM

Apple released its newest version of macOS today called High Sierra, but we can't recommend that you upgrade yet. Why?

1. There is a nasty zero-day vulnerability in High Sierra that was discovered hours before release. Via ZDnet.

2. We haven't yet tested all of our apps and workflows against it yet. Early adopters usually encounter a few bumps, and we don't want that to be you. Arstechnica Review

Hope all students, faculty and staff are having a good semester so far. We're always here to help at IT Services.

Laptop Program: Microsoft Surface Support for 2017-18
Posted by Andrew McAllister on 23 June 2017 10:14 AM

If you already have a Microsoft Surface Pro, and are wondering if it's recommended or supported, read on.

Based on demand from students, we're currently evaluating and expecting to support the Surface Book, Surface Pro and Surface Laptop (for some programs) for 2017-18.

  • If you already have a Surface device, do not purchase another laptop.
  • If you are considering the Surface, please wait for our recommendations on models.
    More than likely we will be recommending the Core i7 versions, and the Book over the Pro for certain programs.
