I am studying Information Technologies (first year) and I will be purchasing MacBook soon (mainly, because I am web designer and I don't play games at all, only Starcraft 2 which is available for MacOSX). I heard that many "sound designers" found the Mac OS X easier to work with (from hardware and software side). So, prolly the Mac is perfect for school and beatmaking both.
From a musicians standpoint I think I'm cool with what I need because the software synths require massive amounts of RAM. My main concern is can I get a Mac for my music stuff but still be able to function in the IT world professionally? If not what are suggestions for laptops. Right now I'm looking at the lowest end Dell XPS 15.
