Hey guys, new to posting on here but been reading for a while. I just had a question to ask, so here it goes. Hopefully I'll begin going to university this September for either mechanical engineering or first year common engineering (undeclared). I was wondering if a base 13" MBP would suffice or should I just go for a Windows laptop. Max I can spend is for a base 13" MBP so the 15" and 17" aren't an option. Screen size isn't a real issue to my, I can use an external monitor in my dorm for that. Personal use is light for computer. Don't play games, only watch movies, tv shows, and social networking. So, just hoping to get your opinions and suggestions about what I should do. I'll be going to univeristy in Ontario, Canada if that makes a difference for curriculum requirements. Thanks in advance for all your help. EDIT: I will be waiting to buy the computer during the summer, so hopefully Ivy Bridge will be out and shipping with the MBPs by then and hopefully those processors will be good enough.
