I have the option to buy a fully loaded macbook pro, with all kinds of web development software from a friend who is a developer, for $600. Good deal, I’m going to do that no matter what, but here’s my question…
So many web-based products are run on IE, should I also invest in a good windows laptop? Or desktop? Can I do this gig with only a mac, or do I need to have a windows machine as well?
Any and all opinions are welcomed. Thanks!
Ummm… Yeah. That doesn’t make sense, but thanks for the input…?
You should be able to run a partition to boot both windows and mac… I think… I know you can double boot windows and linux.
Anyways, I’m not sure 100% but I think I remember hearing about a mac IE emulator or something. I would look into one of these options before buying another computer out right when you may not need to.
Then again personally I wouldn’t run a mac anyways, but that’s me haha
Hi, TXTornado, and welcome to the forums.
Unless your school course is using Windows-only software, then I’d say no, don’t bother. I work entirely on Linux using Bluefish, which is a free editor. I do have a dual-boot with Windows, but I only use the Windows side to double-check sites in IE and Windows versions of other browsers. You can also use something like VirtualBox on your Mac to do the same thing, or use a service like [URL=“http://www.browsercam.com/”]BrowserCam.
BTW, I think Polyhedra was being ironic. (I sincerely hope so - it was dreadful advice. )
you can make windows and linux pertion to use both operating sysstem in an single pc.for mac i think there is no such software which give you option to install mac in a normal pc/laptop.
the apple corperation, if I saw correctly said it’s illegal to use Mac OS on not macs.
p.s. mac or pc it doesn’t matter
