"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."
