Jeff Carlson, a writer for The Seattle Times provides a review of Apple's MacBook portable computer.  It's a great read, especially for those who are considering the purchase of their first Mac.  The following are quotes from the article:

"But students today are just as likely to find themselves bathed in the LCD glow of the computer aisles of electronics chains. The question of which computer to take to school has become more important than which type of pens to buy"


"the Intel-based MacBook can run Windows, either directly using Apple's Boot Camp beta (which was recently updated to version 1.1 and will appear as a full-fledged feature in the upcoming Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/) or using virtualization software such as Parallels Desktop (www.parallels.com)."

"To me, of course, the most compelling argument for taking a Mac to school is the enormous headache you'll avoid by not having to worry about viruses or spyware. This Windows plague is still not an issue under Mac OS X, a point that I think many virus-weary Windows users have a hard time believing. School can cause plenty of headaches on its own."


Switch To A Mac Commentary

From Apple's iLife suite to the secure, stable, and modern OS X operating system, Apple's line of portable notebooks offer the features that today's tech savvy and digitally entrenched students demand.  It's clear that Apple is gaining momentum amongst college and high school students.  I expect the trend to gain momentum.
