I know this will probably cause some controversy with some people on this site, but I am sure that there are people here who use both Windows and Macs. When I go back to college in the fall I will need to get a laptop that runs Windows. It kind of makes me sad that I wont be able to use my PB G4, oh well. I am not sure what brand to get, I had an Alienware laptop that I used when I was there before, but it was pretty big and I would like to get something that is easy to carry around. I wont need the laptop until August so I will probably wait and get it in July. The college has minimum specifications that the laptop needs to meet. Here are the minimum specs: Equivalent of an Intel® Pentium® M processor 715 (1.5GHz) XGA TFT Active Matrix Display SVGA/XGA Video Adapter 2 GB Memory 80GB Hard Drive DVD-RW Drive Integrated 10/100 Ethernet adapter Integrated 802.11b/g wireless network adapter Integrated sound and stereo speakers, headphone/speaker jack, and microphone jacks Lithium ion battery with AC pack Extra Lithium ion battery Integrated V.92 56K modem Extended Service Plan Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional What brand would everyone reccomend? Price isnt a real big issue, so I am going to get something that is going to last me for the rest of the time I am in college. I just got to thinking about something, do you think that by the time I would purchase this, which will be in mid to late July, that Windows will be more stable on the MacBook Pro? If I would be able to run Windows on a MBP and have it run stable and have no problems that would make it a lot easier for me, I wouldnt have to switch from using my PB and my Windows laptop, I could just use one laptop.
