Hi there, I am a long time Windows user, and tommorrow I will be purchasing a Macbook (the most basic version, with 1gb RAM). I am pretty excited with the thought of playing around with a new OS having not been exposed to Mac OSX really before. I do plan to have Windows XP on it as I cannot afford to repurchase Mac licences for the programs I use (At £300 a shot, it's too much!) I am a postgraduate student, and I needed a smallish laptop I could lug to classes with the main use of using Stata, reading PDFs (Journals), Mathematica and Scientific Workplace. The Macbook was the best buy by far thanks to the HE Discount. It will go along with the Dell XPS M170 I have at uni along with the Formac 20" LCD I have for work. The XPS is far too big to carry around Does anyone have any tips when I get it tommorrow? Is it worth getting Office for Mac? Thanks, and hopefully be posting more.
