I've been browsing your forums in hopes of finding an answer to my question: Should I buy a Mac or PC? First of all, I am looking for a laptop for when I go to college next year. So take that into consideration when replying. Yes, I know some of the things I want to do are better for desktops (for both mac and pc). I also know that I may be a little ignorant on some of my topics (lack of research eg. Is MVP 2005 available on mac, is a USB mouse supported, will my external HD be supported (usb) ) - I am into gaming. I have slowly started to move away from FPS considering I won't have too much time in college as I will be mainly focused on baseball and school word. But, I still plan on downloading/buying a few sports games, racing games, and maybe even a few FPS's. I know mac's can duel boot, but I'd hate to do that to such a beautiful computer. I love the feel of my Razer mouse, and I would be afraid to part with it. I also like to use my Logitech controler as I am into the sports and racing games. Some of the games I am playing right now: MVP Baseball 2005 (I am in love, but I don't think it's available for mac), BF 2142, GRID, Madden 08. - I am into graphic design, video creation/editing, music creation/editing. I've heard great things for all of these on the mac, but I am afraid that i'll have a little more trouble finding some of the third party programs. (Fraps, virtual dub) I use these for recording in-game. I may even be considering a career in this area. - (Sorry if I shouldn't be posting this, but it's the truth.) I download a ton of music and I like to "Test Drive" software before I buy it (I'm not lying, if I like it, I buy it). What are some of my options for torrents and music on the mac? (In Canada I believe it is still legal for most of these activities. Minus the software part) - I really need this laptop for school, it'll be very useful in school as well as in my free time. I've been on a campus tour and the school has both macs and pc's throught out the school. - I am afraid of using Windows Vista when I buy my lap top. Frightened. I need some one with some background on this OS to help me out. I will be attending college on a baseball scholarship so I know I may not have time for some of these activities, but I'm willing to give them up. REMEMBER: I am talking about a laptop.
