What would you guys do in this situation? I'm taking a teaching job (high school) where I would receive a Dell laptop. I actually asked the IT dept. about using my Mac which would run Windows so there shouldn't be any compatibility problems, they just mentioned that tech support is easier if everyone has the same laptop. Obviously I would prefer to use my Mac (I use a laptop as my primary computer), I wouldn't even care about the free laptop. But I don't want to be a pain in the ass, they would probably not consider it a favor to save the cost of the laptop. I suppose I could use both but is that just going to be a headache with syncing the two? And if I'm using a Dell all the time, am I destined to become a former Mac user?
