    I'm going to start a multimedia journalism course in September and I'm just wondering whether I actually need a MacBook or I'd get away with a laptop that operates on windows.
    **** The university have a Mac suite of which can be used for video editing and whatnot... ****


    Is there anyone of whom is currently studying multimedia journalism that can give me some advice please?

    You don't necessarily NEED one.

    If you said the Uni have a Mac suite that you can take advantage of, It's probably not necessary! You can do most theory work (i.e internet research, word processing etc.) on a Windows operating machine, and use the Mac suite when appropriate for editing and other stuff.

    However, Mac laptops are pretty awesome and easy to use when it comes to Media. I study Media Production (only at AS level/BTEC at the moment) but I already find it's features come in handy for my studies.

    It's personal preference really, whether you'd be more comfortable using your own Mac for editing over the University's and whether you're ready to spend all that money. (Let's be real, Macs are pretty expensive for what they are!)

    Hope I have been of help!
