What Type of Computer Do I Need to Buy?
One question we get quite a bit is "What type of computer do I need to buy?". CSE faculty have put together some helpful information on what type of system to look into getting.

The Jacobs School of Engineering maintains electronic mailings lists that we use when we need to notify you of course changes, major requirement changes, announcements of important forums, and even job notices, therefore, check your UCSD email account regularly.
A word to the wise: We are very busy during the first two weeks of the quarter (add/drop period), therefore, please plan accordingly. One more point: DO NOT believe every rumor you hear, always check with us first. This will save you a lot of headaches! Believe it or not, the department is a better source of information than your roommate(s) and/or friend(s).
We are here to guide you and make your experience at UCSD a great one! We look forward to seeing you in the fall. In the meantime, enjoy your summer.
