I have an ASUS laptop that needs a new motherboard and i can't find one for less than 400$ and no one has been able to repair it. So i'm considering buying a new laptop. I'm an IT student and next year I graduate. I don't use to program in VB but i've seen that nowadays everyone should work with it. I need a new laptop but probably i will need windows also and if i buy a mac, should i buy a 15" or a 12" ? So my main questions are: A) Mac or not Mac, do you really think MBP will run windows as dual boot? B) 15" vs 12", i find the 12" too small, but i'm afraid the 15" are too big.. C) Should I buy a sony vaio or dell or asus ... ( to have VB and MTGo ) I'd appreciate some advice.. thx in advance!
