Ok, so i'm finishing up all my pre-req science and math courses to enter engineering school. I plan on focusing in electrical engineering and computer science, so i need a laptop that'll be beneficial for that. Unfortunately, I haven't started any of the computer classes, so my knowledge of computers is limited, although I'm not clueless. I need a laptop for a summer research program in nebraska i was recently accepted to, so instead of taking my time and researching laptops for the next year or so, I need to buy one in the next few weeks. I can't decide between a mac or pc, and if i stick with a pc, what kind? I'd be using it for videos, music, data collection and mathematic software, and some gaming. Should I stick with a pc? And can anyone give me some suggestions. I've got so much going on right now that I don't really have the time to research a laptop properly. I'd like to not spend more than $1500. Thanks!
