    Hi dudes8)

    I've been asked the above question, and because i haven't had any experience with a mac i'm not sure.

    Basically they want a laptop for:

    work, technical support, network monitoring etc
    play, making websites, graphics design etc

    and because mac can have vista installed also he's thinking vista for work leopard for play.

    any suggestions?

    Cheers Dudes

    Yeah, I'm sure it would be fine mate. Here is a macbook being used by an up and coming technician.

    :lol: thats funny.

    Seriousley though it should be fine to use a mac. In my job where people are designing adverts for the local paper and doing websites, they were all done on macs, although a few of the designers use PCs now.

    Don't see why not, 10.5 has bootcamp so you can dual boot between Vista/XP and OSX.
