    I'm starting classes in the summer at my community college, and I was wondering if there were any classes that would be geared towards macs, whether it be their use or their repair. Also, what kind of career options are there if I wanted to work with macs? Sorry for being so vague, if you need me to be more specific, just ask.

    Many colleges use Macs in their Video/Photo editing classes. Many education programs use Macs during their technology classes.

    digital video, web/graphic design, photography

    of course, these are also done one windows too. It depends on what the college use and the company you go work for.

    Doubt it....

    Considering Microsoft's market share, Windows is basically all you're going to find at most colleges, sadly. Most companies could care less if you can replace a logic board in a MacBook with your eyes closed. I'd recommend just going along with Windows/PC training in school to get a general knowledge of computers and hardware, and then doing Apple training/certifications on your own.

    IT? Hell, if you fix windows computers for long enough, OS X with a side of Boot Camp is your only option. Heh.

    Honestly, though, the only careers that are geared towards Mac use are any that require software that's also out for OS X. Speaking of which, I crave a Universal Binary Flash 9...

    Really, though, I think plenty of people out there forget that very few careers are really reliant on the tech specs of computers (Microsoft sure as hell is, making Vista Business require a decent video card). Then again, if you're on this board, you're probably not just using a computer primarily for typing and email correspondence with clients...
