So here it goes....Is Macbook any good for Engineering applications? Ok let me be more specific! I am in First year Engineering right now and will go into Electrical engineering next year....but I really dont have any idea what programs i will be using in Elec engineering(calling all the engineers on this forum!! )...My assumption at this point of time would be some graphics circuitry software like Eagle, minicap and a bit of CAD.As a result i will probably have to use bootcamp to nstall XP. The config. of mac i was thinking of is: 2.0ghz,2.0 GB ram, 120 GB HDD ok so the question is...would macbook be okay for engineering purposes in terms of GRAPHICS(INTEL GMA 950)???Also i am a light gamer of racing games including NFSMW,NFSU2,NFS carbon and pretty much all the racing games out there, so would the current macbook serve those needs with the integrated graphic card? I've heard tthat if you install XP you can increase the shared video memory upto 224 MB(shudnt be a prob in a mac with 2 gb ram)?is it true? And the most important of all, when is a good time to buy a macbook?? I've heard that Santa rosa platform is coming out in around May and they are hoping for a big upgrade for Macbook graphics? is it true? if yes anyone got a date when these new upgraded macs coming out? I was actually thinking of purchasing a macbook in august, the reason being that leopard is released soon and hopefully New line of santa rosa macbooks(?) too.... Please advice if its a good choice to buy a macbook for engineering(especially electrical). Also take into consideration that most of the programs i will be running are only made for windows!!
