Completely off topic... Don't get a Macbook Pro for college, it's a complete waste and rip-off. There's not one school-related thing a Mac can do that a Windows can't do. 

 

Unless you're going into Engineering/Comp Sci/Design classes, you won't even need a computer half as powerful. If you are, Windows will have better compatibility with the needed programs. 

 

Save yourself some money and get a Lenovo/HP business laptop with the same specs for half the price.

MacBook's are nice computers. They are built well, long lasting, reliable and they have good resale value.

Exactly, but that's why I mentioned Lenovo. Their Thinkpad T series are pretty much indestructible under normal circumstances and last much longer after the hardware goes obsolete. 

 

Sorry to hijack thread, but just had to save this guy from wasting $2,000 on a sub-specced Mac. A $1,400 Lenovo T will have the same configurations and a MUCH better build quality. HP is even cheaper, but with worse quality. The only thing you're trading off is the style, which honestly shouldn't matter to a student.

And resale value. A macbook is still worth alot after 2 years, while a PC is worth $200 bucks. Since macbooks are built so well, I would recommend buying a used macbook, 1 year old, you;ll save 2 or 3 hundred.

A guy mentions he wants to save up for a mbp and his thread turns into a mac vs pc debate.  Astounding.popcorn.gif

I've never heard of any 2 year old Lenovo (Or any PC that had decent specs. at start) that sells for $200.

 

Yes, used Macs are usually worth more than used PCs, but you're forgetting that the new Macs are also proportionally more expensive. 

 

And in case you didn't heard me the first time, Lenovos are 100% built better than Macs, there's no competition. That and the fact that as a STUDENT, you're trying to get the best bang for the buck, with most compatibility and reliability using school required software and homework. There's no place for a Mac in such an environment.

 

While it may be true that Macs may provide better high end software than PC, Colleges never require anything close to that level, student's will never need that many options, and most Mac users who buy it for the supposedly "better software" never progress beyond adding a simple transition in a video clip.

I purchased a new MB (not pro) in 2007 when I headed off to school. Yes I barely used a lot of the higher-end software that it came with (although it bears mentioning that if you were to ever need said software you certainly would pay for it with a PC), but I still have that computer now. I replaced the battery a year ago and I've never had to take it for repairs. 

 

My brother and sister have gone through 2 Dells, 2 HPs, and a Toshiba in the same time, all of which were specced out better than the MB. :)

I am with Xinze on this, I bought a mac for university and it is a waste of money. Have had to reinstall the operating system over 5x because of faulty updates, replace the power cable twice etcetera.

 

Don't get mac from my experience they dont last, i am giving mine away to my sister because of i have never experienced this many problems with my PC laptop.
