Hi, so I was planning on buying a new laptop computer for college next year. I would purchase this computer sometime this year, in the winter or the fall, so that the money used for the laptop is not included in financial aid assessments. I would mostly be doing normal academic work with this computer, but I would also like it to be able to play games, specifically battlefield 3. I have been looking at various computer sales websites, and have found that many PC computers offer better hardware for a cheaper price. However, I have used macs my entire life, (my family has never owned a PC) and I am afraid that I will find the windows operating system frustrating. I am also a fan of the high build quality, compatibility, and ease of use of macs. Simply put, is it worth it to go for the mac? I was thinking of the 15" i7. In later years, will it be able to continue playing new games?
