Hey everyone, i recently bought my first mac (Mac Mini) but I'm not new to them, so I do have experience with the OS. I'm very good with computers all all types and I am currently taking Computer Programming in College. At my College you have to LEASE a DELL laptop (that is almost 3 years old) for $1,200 CDN a YEAR!!. It comes with all the software I need, but it sucks. Recently the Program started discussing this issue and said that we are most likely going to be allowed to buy our own laptops and get them set up with the software instead. Here's my question: If i use bootcamp and install windows XP pro, should everything such as connecting to a domain, and compiling programs will work flawlessly? would you recommend buying a Macbook and install bootcamp, or just buy windows designd laptop just to be safe. its a matter of opinion / know issues with bootcamp / mac hardware working in a largedomain and compiling software. (run on sentence, yay!) And go!
