Hello, I am a first time forum user and I am not sure if I am posting the question on the right place- apologize if this isn't the right place. I will be starting PhD in Financial Economics in a month and looking forward to purchase a good ultrabook. I would buy Macbook Air in a second if it weren't for one thing- Microsoft Excel. I use Excel heavily for modeling and cannot live without it. I especially need Excel for data cleaning for my dissertation work and research. I initially planned to buy Asus Zenbook (4GB ram; 8GB ram version is not available in my country) but the reviews are not that great. The alternative that I have is to buy Macbook Air 4GB/256GB model (again, 8GB model is not available in my country but I can live with 4GB since I do not intend to run heavy models in my laptop anyway). My question is whether the MacBook keyboard is compatible with the Excel shortcuts provided I use windows on Mac. For instance, I would use Alt-H-S-U to open the sort option on a PC. Does this shortcut work on MacBook if I use Excel in Windows environment that runs through VirtualBox or BootCamp? Thank you.
