General Board / Re: Forget MAC or PC, what laptop is the best?

If you own a desktop, I'd recommend the MacBook Air. I have one, and it's fantastic. Super light-weight, nice bright screen, and fairly fast. The battery life is great and with all the heavy books, the light weight is worth it. You can install Windows for test-taking, too. That said, if you don't have a desktop it's harder to recommend the air. I use mine almost exclusively, but I do have a desktop to fall back on if I need a CD/DVD Rom, or a little more processing power.

I don't own a desktop at the moment so the air might not be for me. I did go and look at it however, and it is indeed a nice one :)

well this has all been very helpful. I have been leaning towards a MAC, particularly the black Macbook, but I am not sure yet.

does anyone have any advice on what brand of PCs are most reliable?

I mean, for law school purposes, is one better than another?

Wow thank you very much :)

I will be going to look at all of those sites you recommended, because I myself have been driving myself nuts trying to decide on one!

Alright, I have read all of the arguments regarding MACs vs. PCs, but my question is what brand of laptop is the best and why?

I need to start shopping around more and looking for one to buy in the very near future. I am starting school this Fall. There is not a laptop requirement at my school, and they said that either a MAC or a PC would be fine. I would just have to be able to run Windows on the MAC for the exam software (so basically once a semester). I have been a PC user my whole life and grew up with a computer programmer in my house, so of course I know how to use a PC more so than a MAC. I do however like Apple products.

I just want to get some opinions from people on what brand of laptops works the best for them and why. I realize that everyone likes certain computer brands for different reasons. I grew up using Dells, but I have never had a Dell laptop. I have friends who have HPs and they love them. There are positives and negatives with every brand, from what I have heard, I just want to know what your thoughts are...

What computer brand is the most reliable?

I am actually planning on going to Barry this Fall. From what I know of it, it sounds like a great upcoming law school. I attended their "Acceptance Days" open house and fell in love with the school. They offer almost everyone some type of scholarship and if you make it into the top 10% of your class after the first year, they will pay for 75% of your tuition the following year.

You should go to their website and read about the school. They have won national competitions for their Trial Team and their most recent Bar passage rate was 80%. That says a lot...to me at least.

Hope this helps  ;D
