I am thinking about purchasing a laptop for college studying architecture, and I would really like to invest in a laptop. I like the looks of the Macbook a lot, but my family is telling me its "obsolete" and everyone uses PC. I would only really be using it to surf the web and chat, until I get into college where i would be using probably autocad and programs like that. I was trying to compare a Apple Macbook 13.3" and the Sony Vaio VGN-N130 and...just looking for any sort of input, because i never have tried apple/ or a macintosh before. Thanks in advance.
