So I want to get a job in the summer and save up for a MacBook for university as I have never had one before.

As I have never had anything related to apple and have always had a Windows PC (except an iPod back in the day that had ios6 lol)

Will it be hard to get used to the interface as I am so unfamiliar with it? Because I don't want to be asking other people in labs/lectures how to change a few settings xD

Generally speaking, if you've grown up used to one OS it's quite difficult to move to another at first. A decade of using Windows means nothing is where you'd expect it on a Mac. And vice versa. And the same is true if Linux is involved.

It's not difficult to get used to, all major OS developers are very good at making their systems intuitive and easy to use nowadays. But habits from one OS don't transfer over easily, especially between 2 totally different systems like MacOS and Windows. It's not difficult, it just takes time to relarn where things are
