I'm currently buying a laptop, both for personal reasons but also because I saw this on the Cambridge uni website (which is my first choice):
"Therefore it may be useful to have a personal laptop. A basic laptop is sufficient since substantial computation can always be performed on University machines."
However, I cannot find any information about the OS used for the degree. Will buying an OS X device versus Windows advantage/disadvantage me in any way? Also, a bit off-topic, but which do you (Current students) prefer?
