Which laptop for engineering?

<p>Hey guys, I'll be an enviornmental engineering in Sept and I was wondering if engineering students favored pc's or macs. I'm not sure which one to get.Suggestions would be aprreciated.</p>

<p>I've personally seen more engineers with PCs (the hardcore looking ones mostly, like IBM Thinkpads). However, I see more grad students in general with Macs. I'd say depends what you want to do with your computer specifically, and which one suits your style better.</p>

<p>Honestly, get what you're comfortable with already. If you're on a pc now, just stick with one.</p>

<p>Though I'd say go for a PC, Mac's tend to be overpriced in comparison with a PC counterpart of the same caliber.</p>

<p>Doesn't matter.</p>

<p>As long as it can run heavy MATLAB programs smoothly, you're fine.</p>
