Anonymous asked: hello! I was reading your post on which laptop to purchase and I was wondering which laptop the moderator of this blog is using! :) I was thinking of switching to a macbook pro but I already bought a new laptop months ago... Would I be losing out if I used a hp laptop instead? Also, do we have to purchase the programs used for the course ourselves? Sorry for the long ask, but thank you for reading it!
I USE A MAC (◠‿◠✿)
Anyhow, don’t waste money! Your brand new laptop will work just fine (: Like we mentioned, even if your laptop doesn’t support certain programmes, school has enough facilities to tide you over.
We’ve never had to buy any programs (except an OS update mac users had to pay for to run a program but it shouldn’t be a problem now) because students get software packages for free from the school! Like the Adobe CS6 Master Collection (although it might be CS7 in a bit) You get the whole package which costs about $3000 for FREE :D
