word proccesing, some java, html, sql, Ill be installing a linux and windows partition most likley so I can test in all 3 os's. Ill be on the internet a lot of course, ill be doing some modeling using programs like blender, and the occasional playing in photoshop. I wont be doing payments luckly, if I go for the 13" higher end setup I have enough for it plus a speck case to keep it safe on any traveling I do. And one of the biggest attracting factors is how well they age and keep their resale, my cousin has a 06 i beleive, its a old black one, and it still runs like a champ.
also not to sound cocky, but Im bored with windows currently, iv been using one since I could crawl, and know my way around it like no other, I feel like learning osx would be a fun experience, and increase my knowlage for doing computer repairs
thanks for the link bandrew, ill check it out, Im currenty a member of dreamspark through my career technical highschool, but I dont know if it provides win 7, and i think its only windows programs, but ill recheckEdited by iQuallzey - 2/24/11 at 7:55am
