I am planing on getting a power book for college in the fall. Although i was recently informed that some of the programs which I will be required to use for my degree program are only made for PC use. How can I get around this and only have one computer

However, some applications will run slowly; For example, if you're an engineering major, and you need to run AutoCad or Pro/E or something, it may run so slowly that you'd be better off just getting a PC. Others (those which depend on direct access to the hardware) may not run at all.
Do you know which programs you'll need to run? Sometimes you can run an equivalent Mac program and fake it.

This is true, and a footnote, the school may need to observe that certain os's are useless because of security cough registry issues might wanna think the Appleworks replacements are just fine! Ringy Ding Ding!
