I'm a senior in high school. In August, I'm planning on going to the University of Alabama to double major in chemical engineering and economics (through their Business school). I'm looking into laptops for school right now. I know that Alabama has discount programs with Dell and Apple, and I currently work on an iMac that I've had for about 8 months. Until then, I was a lifelong Windows user. I love my Mac, but have heard horror stories about compatibility issues, especially in engineering and business. The school has no specific preferences, all we were told was to get as much memory as possible. I was wondering if anyone has any advice for what I should get. Thanks!
