PC or Mac
I am going to be buying a laptop for college, where I am going to be studying 3D animation at RIT's school of film and animation. I currently have a Desktop running windows, but I need a laptop in addition. My question is, should I get a PC or a Mac. I know that Mac's are often used, in fact they are what RIT uses. However would they be powerful enough to run maya, which is very system intensive? The apple powerbooks only are 1.67 GHz, and has only an ATI Radeon 9700. The PC i am looking at is an alienware, which has a P4 3.0 GHz, has a Radeon X800 PCI express, or the newest nVidia, plus up to 2 GB or Ram, and bunch of other powerful stuff.
I just want to know what i should get for a laptop, because i have heard Macs are great for digital stuff like maya, but they just don't seem powerful enough
Any suggestions would be appreciated
