<p>We are trying to decide between a MacBook Pro 15 inch and a Dell 15 inch. I would like this computer to last the four years, if possible. </p>
<p>Can anyone in the program offer a suggestion as to which type of computer would be best? Are there any programs specific to fashion merchandising that require one or the other?
I realize that in the entry level freshman classes the choice of computer may not make a difference, but in the upper level courses are there specific programs used that require one or the other?</p>
<p>My daughter really wants a Mac but I need to be practical.</p>
<p>I would appreciate any suggestions.</p>
