I am a disabled veteran and I've just been accepted into a rehabilitation program that has agreed to provide for a bachelors degree for me. I qualify for a laptop computer under this program, but as it is a government program, they're very particular about what they will buy and they need a justification if something is requested that is different from the norm. Basically, they'd buy me an HP laptop no problem, but I am more interested in a MacBook. I am wondering what the advantages of Macs are over PCs that might help me justify my request. For example, I know that MacBooks have backlit illuminated keyboards. Is this a feature that is exclusive to MacBooks? Any advice would be appreciated!
