Can I use a non-Deerfield issued laptop?

You will be expected to use your Deerfield laptop in class and for school work. You may bring a second computer, but it will have to go through a registration process and have our standard virus protection installed. ITS cannot provide any technical support for non-standard computers and all computers must conform to the required specifications listed below in order to connect to our network and the Internet. However, ITS will make documentation available with instructions for connecting to the Deerfield network and accessing the Academy’s public printers.

REQUIRED Specifications for Non-Standard Computers

Windows XP Professional, Vista Business, 7 Professional or higher
Mac OS X Leopard or higher

All computers connecting to our network will be scanned to verify that they meet these required specifications.
