Hey All I have been a Windows user for most of my life, except for a short stint on Macs when I was very little. Now that I'm about to start my TEE(Tertiary Entrance Examination) my parents have agreed to put a bit of money towards buying a laptop, and I have my heart set on the Macbook Pro, but my parents, being Windows users, arn't so keen for me to get "this weird" thing (their words, not mine). I need your guys help to convince them (and me to some extent) that buying a Mac will be a good thing. Anything will do, from personal switching experiences, to why they are better. Anything that will convince them. Anything will be a great help. Thanks, Luke P.S They are also worried about compatability with my school network, networking in general and compatability with Office so some stuff on that would be helpful.
