Anyone got an Apple powerbook / ibook cos I was thinking of buying one for when I go to uni and just wondered what they're like, since I am a dedicated PC fan.

People i've spoken to have said that mac's are a lot easier to use and work wiv, so that's why ppl love 'em so much.

Question for anyone currently at uni: Do u have ur own comp? If so, what do u reckon is better; having a desktop or laptop?

Is there really much call for a laptop at uni? or will a desktop be ok?

Thanks.

All my experiences with laptops have been poor.

I'd buy a desktop. Cheaper, more HD space (generally), more free slots to upgrade with etc.

If you're concerned about portability, why not buy a PDA with the money saved from buying an equivalent desktop?

I have got a Mac and PC.

Really, Macs are best for graphic designers, programmers, etc as they do not play most PC games. There are some Microsoft products available for it, e.g. Office, but they are completely different to the PC versions (layout/design wise).

One thing which I like about the MAC is that it is much faster than the majority of PCs (depending on which model).

Also, the Mac OS (the latest one is the Panther) is very similar to Microsoft Windows.

Hope this helps!
