Supported Computers

This page lists current supported models of UCA-owned computers.

All devices come with a warranty for hardware failure that’s good for three years after the initial purchase. After this date, IT will attempt to fix or replace faulty hardware if your department is willing to buy the replacement parts.¬† When IT determines that it is no longer financially or technically feasible to continue to support an older model, that model will be dropped from support and will no longer be fixed or serviced.

NOTE: Before any technology purchases, please be aware that IT will only support certain models of computers. For more information, see IT’s Computer Standardization policy.

Supported Windows PCs are listed more or less chronologically by date of release with the most current listed last.

Mac OS versions

Sonoma is the latest version of macOS. Ventura was the previous version. Apple does not support running Sonoma on any systems made before 2017. Do not attempt to update your Mac to the latest version if it is unsupported. The following are the only Mac systems that support Sonoma:

  • MacBook Pro 2018 or later
  • MacBook Air 2018 or later
  • iMac 2019 or later
  • iMac Pro 2017 or later
  • Mac Mini 2018 or later
  • Mac Studio 2022 or later
  • Mac Pro 2019 or later

If your Mac is not one of these listed above, it will need to continue running Ventura or an earlier version. We do not support any Mac OS version earlier than Monterey (macOS 12). For a complete listing of systems compatible with Sonoma, click here.

NOTE: IT has been testing Sonoma internally and has found that SPSS Statistics is currently unsupported on Sonoma and will not run. IBM is aware and is working on a fix for future SPSS releases.
