My eldest is a hs senior. Much to my dh's, her df's, dismay she would like a MacBook for school next year, rather than a PC laptop. He has been throwing up all sorts of road blocks any time she brings it up. She plans to major in Art (plus Business), and sees the benefit of using the Mac since that is what is typically used in the art world.
Last night my dh started at it again. He is absolutely convinced she will have no end of compatibility issues if she's using a Mac. He endlessly asked her who she knows who had/has a Mac in college and what their issues were/are. He refuses to believe her that she has never heard of anyone having any issues. He also refuses to ask his friend who happens to be the webmaster at the college she'll be going to if students have any problems. I finally email the friend late last night and am waiting to hear back.
So my questions are do any of your children use MacBooks and if so have they had any troubles in classes with the software being incompatible with others? Have most schools figure out the issues?
