This kind of sucks:

"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.

The reason I'm looking into all this now is because my dad said he'll buy me my laptop as a graduation present, so I should be getting it soon~ So if I get a Mac, I'll definitely take you up on the tutorial. ♥ I know you say Macs are easier to use than PCs, but I still feel like I'll need it, especially for getting it set up and everything.

Well, new things always take getting used to, even if they are better. You really should get a Mac, especially you. Since computers seem to hate you XD;;; Basically, the consensus of this thread is get a Mac. XD

Computers do seem to hate me. XD;; Except Hilde's computer, which seems to hate her and love me. But that's because I'm nicer and more patient with it.

But yeah...everyone so far has pretty much said to get a Mac. I'm glad I'm getting advice from lots of people in this post because that will make me feel better about my decision in the end. ^_^;

Indeed. Go for the Mac. It comes with my love & time. XD;;;
