So, i am kinda new to this macworld and its really tempting to make a switch from the PC side of the world, But i have a few questions which are confusing the hell outta me! Alright so i will be going into second year electrical engineering this year and have a few questions: 1. Would a Macbook with 2GB ram able to suffice the need for running all the engineering programs like Matlab and some simulation circuitry as well? or i should get the base PRO? 2. I am planning to keep the lappy for the next 3-4 years- so which laptop would be more durable down the road? the MB or the Pro? 3. In terms of portability, i will need to carry the laptop around classes and to and from the university, so is the pro portable enough? Also, is the new MBP's battery life same as the MB? I am a light gamer, mostly racing games (NFS and the like)....and like to play games occasionally. so yeah the question is : shud i get a mB with 2 GB ram or spend $300 more and get the baseline MBP for electrical engineering? NOte: I am going to be running parallel's for all the eng applications including matlab and circuit sim(or w/e its called!) SO yeah, shed some light and some advice! Thanks in advance, Hoping to be a valued member of the Mac World soon!
