Rather than starting a new thread, I wanted to ask here, if anyone has an opinion on pc vs. mac for law school...I doubt it would matter. I am curious if the typing on a macbook makes a difference? And, for those using pc laptops, anyone care to comment about favorites (in terms of reliability or keyboard)?
Are you a mac or pc person? I would check with your school. At mine, macs can't run our exam software unless they are running Windows for macs or whatever it's called. The mac users have to partition their hard drives and install it. Seems like a pain in the butt to me, but if you swear by a mac it might be worth it for you, I guess.
I think the most important thing is to get a LIGHT computer. Casebooks are freakin' heavy and you'll have enough weight on your back in addition to whatever laptop/notebook you are toting. Buy a VERY light computer. You will thank me.
That's the same thing my wife keeps telling me! But, most light laptops seem like fragile pieces of plastic. I missed out on Dell's 1330 at a great price, so now I have to wait. I am leaning away from macbook, but still might get that since I think it will be more reliable than the others.
