I have to buy my dad a laptop. Was thinking of the Lenovo X220 but then I found out it doesn't have an optical drive. Now i'm looking at the Sony Vaio VPCSB11FXB or at the Samsung Samsung NP350U2B-A01. However, I might just buy a refurbished macbook pro. My question is, apart from any ideas/suggestions you may have about the aforementioned laptops, would it be perfectly OK if I ran a windows operating system on the MBP? My dad needs Windows, not OS X.
