Hi all. I'm new around here. I heard a lot of good stuff about the MBP and I already have an iPhone and Ipad 2 (which I can hardly live without) so I was really considering on buying a MBP and complete the set, and try to see what people so like about it. but I have a few problems I'd like you to help me solve. 1. I want to but at least 15" MBP, which is quit expensive as it is, and I was wondering if I should add somthing to it, or for my basic uses it'll do? (studying, music, movies, some games like LOL, diablo3 and such - pretty reguler things) 2. maybe I should have start with this, but here, in my country, most computers are windows, and in most universitys and colleges you can't present your projects and works in other apps but word (you have to present it in Word, or any other windows app). I know, the teachers here are lazy. so I took to some guys here that have MB and they told me they kind of sorry they got one, beacuse it's awesome and all, but it sucks here at schools. they also told me that you can buy some other apps that will change the works to be "readable" by windows apps, but it's expensive. 3.does external hd need to be reboot if it was in a windows os before? I can't switch it between 2 diffrent OS computers? sorry for the long thread! thanks a lot for all who can and want to help! peace!
