Buying a Computer for College

Buying you kid his or her computer for College is going to be another very large expense.  Making the right decision will save you thousands.  I just returned from a client who’s son was very excited about his brand new Mac Powerbook Pro his grandparents had purchased for him.  A whopping $3500 for this bad boy.  Turns out after a little research, the Mac OS is not compatible with his College software requirements.  This is the number one problem with Macs.  Most software is not written for Mac.  To have to add the cost of Windows on top of what has already been spent is just further insult.  Everything can be done a Windows PC.  Every piece of software from Adobe will run better on the PC.  Unless your kid is going to be a graphics arts major do not buy a Mac.
