Unsupported Devices

Chromebook, iPad, and Tablets

  • Chromebook: Some educational programs and tools do not work on Chrome OS. Therefore, we advise against purchasing a Chromebook for your studies.
  • iPad and other tablets: These devices do not support all necessary programs and may have functionality limitations compared to a traditional laptop or desktop.

Limitations with Unsupported Devices

  • Reference Tool: Unsupported devices cannot use EndNote, an important tool for managing references in academic work.
