    Questions!! Please help me!!
    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for reading this thread, and hopefully someone here will be able to answer my few simple questions.

    I'm a student, majoring in Computer Science. I've been searching to buy a new laptop. Dell E1505, Alienware MJ-12 Series, and Apple MacBook Pro are the ones I'm looking at. I'm not worry or concern if I get a Dell or an Alienware, but I'm very concern if I get an Apple. The reason for my concern is because I'm afraid it might not support the softwares that I use to do my school work. Because I'm a computer science major, I'm always coding in java, C, C++, php, and etc. How well do you think apple computer or if there's a software that I can use to code in those languages?

    I called Apple, and the guy I talked to pretty much stutter or mumble his answer to me. I'd love to get an Apple. But because of my school work, I'm very reluctant.

    Please fill me in...

    Thanks for your time

    java and php will be fine.

    depends on what your going to be coding in c and c++

    Apple, think different

    XCode comes with every Mac, and that can compile C/C++ and Objective C, as well as Java too. PHP coding works a dream on the Mac too in conjunction with MySQL using Mac OS X's web serving (via Apache).

    So long as your C/C++ code is ANSI based (ie: not using Win32 APIs) you will be fine. Plus if necessary you can run Windows XP on the Mac Book Pro now.
