The specific device requirements for a graphic design course can vary, but generally, you will need a computer with adequate specifications. Most graphic design software, such as Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.), runs on both Windows and macOS operating systems. Therefore, you can choose a computer that suits your preferences. It's recommended to have a computer with a decent processor, sufficient RAM, and ample storage space. Additionally, having a graphics tablet can be beneficial for more precise digital drawing and illustration work.
