"Should I bring a PC or Macintosh computer?
Barnard is a "PC campus". Nearly all of the computers in the computer labs are Dell PCs, as well as all faculty and staff computers. We do not mandate that all students purchase PCs, but your personal computer applications will be more compatible with the applications in the labs if you bring a PC. This is particularly important if you are relying on the labs for printouts. In addition, our staff is trained more in-depth on the PC platform and is therefore better able to assist PC users."
I'm not really sure how much stock to put in that, though. I mean, what things would I be trying to print from besides Office programs anyway? I've never had trouble sending files back and forth with my friends who have Macs, besides the fact that I can't open Photoshop files. I'm betting that a lot of students bring Macs anyway.
But I have a question regarding my decision of what kind of computer to get. Does anyone use Windows Vista? I'm wondering if the rumors that it sucks (and by that I mean more than other Windows platforms) are true or not.
