I'd see what your college is using in your curriculum first before committing to either laptop. But you should also be aware of Neo Office and Open Office since you can create .DOC and PowerPoint compatible content/files with such.
I am going to college next year and I am going to be a business major. I have used PC's my whole life but I have started to fall in love with all the creations from apple. I am trying to figure out what kind of laptop i should get? I need something portable and i know i wont be doing anything more advanced then powerpoint or excel. PLEASE HELP I NEED TO DECIDE ASAP!!! thanks.
