Next year I will be a freshman art student, and after foundation year I plan on either majoring in illustration or animation. However, for the start of next year, I'm planning on getting a new computer, but I haven't been able to figure out what would be a better choice. I have emailed the school, and they say that a laptop is not necessary freshman year due to the quality of their computer labs.
I do own a (very) basic HP laptop right now that would do well for email/general web browsing, but I plan on doing digital art. I love the portability of the laptop, but the imac has much better specs than the macbook pro.
Would you recommend that I get the imac and keep my current laptop, or get a macbook pro?
