Mac or PC At Boarding School
I have recently been accepted into the Phillips Exeter Academy, and will be needing a laptop. I built my own desktop (PC) that I've used for many things that require a strong computer such as 3D modeling/rendering, astronomy work, video games, video editing, game development, and AI development. I personally prefer PCs because in most cases you can buy a PC with a stronger CPU and GPU than a mac, but I am unsure whether or not any classes require the use of a mac. Also, do most students use macs? I don't want to be the one guy with a PC.6 replies
