Official Technical Outfitter of the Forest
WakeWare is a robust student computing program that recommends highly configured, insured, and supported personal computing devices at a negotiated price for our undergraduate students.
The M1 chip has known compatibility issues with Window’s-based virtualization software that many of our faculty and students utilize in class to run Windows-only applications, such as Excel Add-ons.
We encourage you to wait until later in the summer to purchase your WakeWare laptop to ensure you have the newest technology and access to vendor’s back to school promotions.
