I am in a very similar position.
My wife went into preterm labor, and I am now homebound. With many thanks to the office
They are willing to put down 1000 dollars towards a laptop, the rest is on me.
What specifically are the advantages of getting the macbook Pro when it pertains to archicad? does it run better? Faster? My office is okay with whatever I want to get, and our I T guy will support either. I have never had a mac, but am willing to try.
Found a used 2.33 GHTz macbook pro, 2499. can equip a windows machine just like it for 2200. Including full suite of office, and XP. We run 9 in the office, but will be switching to 11 shortly.
Any advise will be appreciated.
