    hi everyone,im here to need your advice..

    yea my major is industrial desgin and ive been using my thinkpad for years now i want a new one.

    i like photography,i kno mac is the best choice for it no doubt.but to my major,i have to use some programs. some friends suggested me a macbook pro but also some people say mac is just good for graphic design.and their say 3dsmax and autocad are not available on mac.i know there is a bootcamp but i heard if you install a XP on your mac,it gets your mac in a running badly.
    how about the programs like 3dsmax and autocad on mac system? im in such a dilemma about to buy a mac or a HP . sorry to talk about HP on a apple forum, no hate.

    yea ,btw,i cant afford the 15 inches pro.. 13 inches are enough for the industrial desgin?

    thanks a lot!

    Any laptop you buy will be plugged into a larger monitor in the first place. I wouldn't even bother running autocad on a 13" screen. What a headache.
