Would this be your only computer? I think you might find it to be too small for doing research and writing papers. However, you could purchase a monitor and a keyboard to hook it up to so that you could work on it more comfortably when not in school.
I have the 11in MacBook and have gotten through my online MSN with it (6 more weeks!). I love it! I find it much more user friendly than windows! I have written a lot of papers with it with no problems! I would go to the Apple store and play around on one before you make your decision. Good luck!
I have 13 inch MacBook that I love. I wouldn't mind having an 11 inch MacBook and probably would have gone with that if I purchased it myself. But this was a gift and I am not complaining. Really one of the best gifts I've ever gotten for nursing school.
I absolutely love my MacBook Pro! I love all of my apple gadgets! I'm an apple nut!!! Lol! User friendly plus, if it's absolutely required, you can easily change pages documents to word documents. I use an app called audionote on my macbook to record class (where allowed) while taking notes that follow the recording. Very helpful and also available on my iphone and ipad. The recordings end up on my phone, ipad, and macbook so I can study anytime and anywhere. Same with pages or keynote. I used these back when I had A&P. My instructor allowed us to take photos of slides in the microscope so I took photos of them, labeled them through keynote, and had them on all my gadgets to study. My MacBook Pro has been invaluable to me so it was very well worth the cash!
