I'm going to school in the fall and i need to start gettin my laptop game in check

I know that I want it to be somewhere around 500GB

cuz ill be using it for everything.... school work... music programs (which as of now are Windows operated)

I've always been a PC and whenever I try to use a Mac it's definitely a bit confusing...but I'm willing to learn

my biggest concern is that I might need to switch...idk what for....or when....but i don't want to.

In that case, what do you guys think I should get for college?

P.S. If u guys post can you give me some explanation as to why?

it's all about your budget bro, I would say get a mac but they're expensive as hell and no a Macbook air is not a good fit for college.. Yes it's nice but it doesn't come with a lot of HD space and has only 1 usb port

I bought my macbook pro in 2009 and yes I love it but I got it with everything upgraded and it cost me like 2,100$ so if you have a big budge by all means go with the MacBook pro

but if you only have lik 1000$ to spend you can probably get a nice Sony Vaio or Toshiba that comes with twice the RAM/HD space/USB ports and stuff than the mac.

Not ramming the macs because I'm a Mac guy but i'm just saying for a college student that's never used a mac, there's no use to switch now just because of the Logo :kanyeshrug:

It has 2 usb ports. Not that you need them though. The Air is all you need for college, but if you have more demands and you want to carry a bigger machine I suggest getting the MacBook Pro. I would never suggest a PC... That's for older people who can't accept the change that happens.

Which ever you want, you should not have much over 100 gb stored on your laptop anyway. I suggest you get some external drives for additional storage. It is also wise to get many of them rather than one big one. I would never store all my stuff on one HD. I currently have 8 in use and 4 of them as back ups.

"I would never suggest a PC... That's for older people who can't accept the change that happens."

that's a dumb statement tbh, there are a lot of things good about PC that are not as good on the Mac.

But there are a lot of things good with the mac that isn't good on the PC.

It's all about the person needs and what they want.

And why wouldn't you get over 100GB on your HD? if you're using your laptop on the go why would you get external hard drives? Seems like you don't trust the computer you have if you have 8 external HD and 4 of them are back ups

might be time for a new computer or stop downloading porn :kanyeshrug:

Aliemware laptops are nowhere near as bad as the desktops, but I'm not sure why you'd want a gaming laptop.

Not really that dumb. PC has became so widely used that it gets the most things, that's for sure. The need to have anti-virus crap is already a reason enough not to go that route. Other than that there really aren't that many things that people need to do and can't do on a Mac. Name one that a normal person needs in normal every day life... something that PC's do and Macs can't.

There are several reasons. I have extremely valuable files and therefore they need to be backed up. 1 large HD crashing causes more damage than 1 small one crashing.

Normal hard drives are planned to be used in certain angles. Laptops tend to be used in several position causing damage to the equipment. SSD's or flash drives are a solution here to some extent. Either way it is so that crap on your hard drive slows your machine down. There is no sense in having a full HD on a laptop. Nor does it make sense to have large harddrives on laptops. My new Mac has 128 gb flash memory and I don't plan on having more than maybe 80 gb on it... ever.
