Never owned a Mac before, I've used some briefly (friends/schools). I kinda have it set in my mind already that I'm going to be getting a MacBook Pro - it's just I don't know which would be the best for me. The program I'm enrolling in is "Graphic & Web Design", it's a 2-year course. Now..the entire program is based on Macs. I went to the campus yesterday and checked out the brand new Mac lab that I'm going to be in for most of my classes (man, those rows of iMacs look sweet ). That brings me to the classes - it's a lot of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign/Flash/Fireworks) so I figure it would just be easier to get a Mac to kinda go with the whole way the class is set up. I know I could get a PC notebook and run the same software, but as far as I know Macs run this type of software much more efficiently - am I correct with this assumption? Ok! So I'm thinking the 13" 2.53GHz/4GB Ram/250GB HD would be the one for me. I'm a bit torn on the screen size though, I'm guessing a lot of the work I'll be doing in class will be fine on those huge iMac displays but not might not work so well on the 13" screen. Maybe I'll get a big display for it down the road sometime, the course is 2years anyway - I suppose that could wait. Speaking of 2 years, I want a notebook that will take me through these 2 terms and I'm thinking that a MacBook Pro will do just that. I also plan on getting AppleCare with it. Right then, that about does it. Any thoughts?
