In the next week I will have to buy myself a laptop for my computing degree. Now it's not going to be playing any games ( maybe WOW ) but I want something that is well built , stylish and can run all the various software I need ( office 07 ).
Now the thing is I am tempted to buy an Mac Book as I love Apple's style and feel. I've not used a Mac since 1996 so not sure how much they are like a IBM setup. Will a Macbook be able to work with my home desktop pc ok? I am running Vista Ultimate 64bit would I be able to get office to run on a macos?
One other key area is I need it to last at least 3 years , do Mac's last longer than pc systems or are mac's like pc's now and they go out of date before you even unpacked them from box.
Finally what type of battery is best to go for? My classes run from 1pm till 8pm , is 6-7 hours on a battery asking too much?
Thanks in advance
