Operating Systems

Windows Virtualization

UNH IT does not recommend only one solution/application for running Windows on a Mac but has determined Bootcamp was the best fit for many. We strongly recommend talking to your IT consultant, Academic Technology Liaison, or contacting the IT Service Desk prior to purchasing if you have questions about which solution will work best. For more information, read this Signals article on Windows Virtualization detailing the difference between several applications and compatibilities with UNH central applications. Here is a brief overview of three applications that were tested. We will continue to investigate and report as new applications are brought to our attention.

Product Summary
Note: In order to run Windows with any of these applications, you must also purchase a Windows license.
VMware® Fusion 6 Not sold through the UNH Computer Store. Product must be purchased online. Overall response working within applications or downloading applications from the Web was slow. Not compatible for the application SAS and therefore should not be used by Paul College faculty or students wishing to use their laptop for this application. When downloading large files or applications, use of a hardwire Ethernet connection proved best. Allows for dual functionality.
Parallels Desktop® 9 for Mac Currently available for purchase through the UNH Computer Store as Parallels 8 on a flash drive and once activated can be upgraded for free to 9. Overall response working within applications or downloading applications from the Web was slow. When downloading large files or applications, use of a hardwire Ethernet connection proved best. Allows for dual functionality.
Apple Bootcamp - Mavericks Functionality, performance, and compatibility were best with Bootcamp. Product is included in the Mac Operating System and available at no additional charge. Does not allow for dual functionality. (User chooses which operating system to run at start-up and must reboot to switch.)

Web Browsers

UNH IT does not recommend using only one Web browser, as none have been found to work with all central UNH IT applications in all circumstances. We recommend installing and using several browsers.  If you have questions about which browser will work with specific software, please contact the IT Service Desk for assistance or check the UNH IT online application documentation. Browsers regularly used to access UNH IT applications include the current versions of:

Virus Protection

Email Applications
