I'm not sure how good you are with computers, but one option you have is always to get a Mac and then just run VirtualPC on it anytime you specifically need a Windows-specific-program.
Also, just for my 2 cents, I always brought my computer to class, and a 13" is infinitely easier to carry than a 15". I know it seems like there wouldn't be much difference, and maybe it's just me, but I've had both and the 13" is infinitely easier.
I have a 13" macbook pro right now and I love the size of it.
I'm not great with computers, but I do know a little about them. I would like to stay with a Mac simply because I'm so comfortable with it, but I'm not sure how difficult it would be to have it with the compatibility concerns.
I would make a few calls and see exactly what type of issues you might be looking at compatibility-wise. I'm a Mac guy myself, so unless it's really going to hamper my work, I stick with Macs. In 4 years of undergrad and 3 years of law school, I think I only had to borrow a friend's PC once.
I lost every ounce of respect and administration I ever had for you.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Here is a pretty decent one, and it's $829.99.
Has a third-gen i5-3210M Intel processor, and 6 GBs of DDR3 ram, which gives you more than enough performance to do anything that your university might throw at you.
The Toshiba Portege R935-P322 takes up the ultraportable torch with features you won't find on ultrabooks.
Well they have a bunch of computer labs with all PCs, so I guess if I absolutely needed one, I could always just do my work there.
I just don't see what programs I could need on the PC that I couldn't get by with the Mac, especially with the new updated Microsoft Word they came out with.
I'll look into that. Do you know much about HP/Acer computers? Basically, what's the best PC brand?
For my money, ASUS.
I've heard ASUS is a great PC, too.
As CMXI said, ASUS is good.
I've had some good experiences with HP, never had Acer so I won't comment on them.
Never do Dell though, I don't care what people say, nothing but horrible experiences with them. Plus I will never forgive them for ruining Alienware.
The biggest problem I have with PCs is their durability. I can't say anything bad about how they run other than most don't have the best battery life. That's why I'm tempted to just stay with a Mac right now, I really don't want to have to deal with a bunch of issues and have to go to the store to get it fixed constantly.
Never really had an issue with that tbh, and I carried mine everywhere I went.
I say do whatever you feel most comfortable with, though I will say in my experience that most business programs are designed with PCs in mind and even a virtual pc on a Mac might have troubles running them.
I had a lot of issues on my old PC.
We'll see I guess. I think I'll end up doing more research on the toshiba you linked and some of the ASUS computers and finding the best one out of them, then just bring my current Mac to college for a backup computer.
Get a big screen so the boobs are bigger in the pornos.
Just explore the entire website I linked, has a lot of great reviews and lists (including benchmarks) and see what you like.
3D IMHO FWIW IYAM.
My little MacBook + HDMI adapter + 60" TV = BOOBS BIGGER THAN ME.
And make sure it has an adapter for the cigarette lighter in your van.
I'll hooah that.
You'd hooah anything
Absolutely do not get a Dell. I got a Dell XPS 15z a little shy of two years ago, it's been absolutely nothing but trouble...the hard drive has completely crashed twice in the past six months, before that it was constantly blue screening and freezing...just a nightmare. My own fault for switching away from Mac just to save a few bucks and get a free Xbox...never making that mistake again.
A mentally disabled woman and her daughter were held in an Ohio apartment crowded with people and animals for more than a year, forced to perform manual labor and threatened with dogs and snakes to keep them compliant, authorities said Tuesday.
Federal prosecutors said the people accused of holding the pair in Ashland, about 60 miles south of Cleveland, collected the woman's government benefits and beat her in order to get painkillers for themselves. They kept her in a room with a free-ranging iguana and ordered her to feed the reptile fruits and vegetables her daughter was denied, according to court papers. Sometimes their captors' pit bulls got table food while they had to eat from cans, according to an arrest affidavit quoting witnesses. - CNN
