Computer science& engineering computer

I guys, I got accepted into the college for engineering for computer science. I was just wondering if anyone knew whether it'd benefit me more to have a Mac or Windows laptop? Thanks!

    I think it's ironic that you double posted all things considered.

    But to answer your question, a windows laptop will suit you best.

    However, best case scenario is that rather than spending a bunch of money on a laptop, get a cheap laptop (maybe a chromebook) and a strong desktop.

    Yeah I figured it was going to post twice. I had a bad phone connection at the time. But thanks on the help!

    I took a computer science course there this summer, and the professor said if you're in computer science "don't don't don't DON'T walk into class with a mac". The software the courses use aren't compatible and any simulators which would allow for compatibility hurt your productivity.
