I am new, so my post is going to be long, but sincere. I am having trouble deciding what laptop would be the best buy for me for use in law school. I am planning on going to a school that is explicitly Mac-compatible. My decision is boiling down to: Mid-level Macbook or BlackBook versus HP zv2500t (14.1") or HP zv6500t (15.4") I have customized the HPs to be more comparable to the MacBooks (processor, HDD, RAM, battery, etc) and they come within $150 of each other when anticipating the Education Discount, or the possibility of purchasing a refurb. Ranging from $1000-1250. I currently have an HP zv5000t that has been a good machine. I am thinking that the 13.3" or 14.1" form-factors would be better for portability. Does anyone have experience comparing these two machines or suggestions relating to law school software for exams/testing (again, the school is explicitly Mac-compatible)? Thanks.
