If you are a web designer, I strongly recommend you get a Powerbook G4 like everyone else in your class thing. There are some excellent sites out there made on Macs. Not only does the computer and its programs look better, but the programs are much better, in my opinion, than those on a Windows. If you're a strong gamer, then get a Windows, since Windows supports pretty much all computer games. Macs are better for designers; Dells, HPs, Compaqs, and all those other companies would be the gamer's choice.
