    Well, it depends what you will mainly be using it for. I have a MacBook and LOVE it! I plan on getting an iMac for the house so my MacBook can be used strictly for school. Make sure to buy office for Mac as well.

    I swear by my MacBook Pro. That thing has been through every pre req with me and is now going into the RN program with me. I've had zero problems with it. Microsoft office is a must, I used to love recording my lectures in a&p with the special "notes" feature it has.

    I don't know anyone who has a desktop computer for their personal computer any more. And word to the wise about the MacBook Air....they are cool looking, light & thin, but will snap in half like a cracker. This happened to a friend of mine when she put hers in the security bin at the airport.

    Depends on your needs. I personally love my iMac. But I don't do homework anywhere besides my home.

    I love love love my MacBook Pro. The fact that it's not a desktop makes it wonderful for group projects or going on vacation and still being able to do your work. I used a desktop and library computers while in school for my ADN but my laptop was a godsend during my BSN classes since they were all online.

    Thank you all! It sounds like my best bet will be a MacBook. Wanted to go for the iMac because it is cheaper, but it seems more practical
    to get something that will offer me portability. How much do they run? Will the bas model work.?

    how about just a pc? theres no need to spend $1k on a laptop when a $400 one does the same job. being realistic, nursing school isn't cheap, no reason to make it more expensive.
