Apple technology is much more efficient hardware with it's own operating system and a price tag to match.

PC laptops usually come with windows xp, generic hardware (means easier, cheaper upgrades) and have more software available for them and are cheaper than apple laptops.

As you are going to be doing "Design" at College. You said so in another thread. It might be a good idea to contact your Tutor to find out what they recommend.

Apple used to be the de-facto computer for Designers, this is no necessarily the case any longer, but they have a load of respect in that community.

If you buy one of the newer apple laptops then you would be able to put Windows on it if you didn't like the Apple imaging programs or design programs.

The other difference is that Apple computers have an Apple logo on the lid, the others dont. Software is less expensive for windows machine. My son runs a design company click here and they all use Windows
