So I turned 18 yesterday and got a 13" MBP a birthday/graduation gift. The thing is, I am going to college next year for mechanical engineering and I know that AutoCAD works for macs but I know that a good number of other engineering programs are windows based. The Best Buy guy was preaching pretty hard for mac because he said their graphics card would do me better and all that and he seemed to be pretty confident it was good for mech. engineering.
However, I have some anti-Mac friends who are going all doomsday and telling me how screwed I am for having a MBP and heading into mech. engineering but I want to know how much truth there is to this? I understand a little about dual-booting and running windows but if someone could let me know if I made a shit situation for myself or if I will be fine I would genuinely appreciate it.
