The PC vs. Mac debate
While I won’t be a student nurse for much longer, I am definitely open to becoming a student again in the near (or far) future, and am always a student of life. I want something that is durable for carrying around with me, has enough memory for my work, music, and pictures, and all the other really cool and fun features that new laptops come with. Not anything too big, but nothing too small (I don’t want to have to wear my reading glasses ALL the time!).
In the last two years I’ve noticed a gradual transition from PCs to Macs in my nursing class room. My dilemma is really the price. And re-learning a whole system. On the other hand, I’ve never met a Mac user who regretted their purchase (have you?). I can’t exactly say the same for PC users.
So while I am in the early stages of deliberation – I need your help. What’s a girl to do about getting a new computer? As a student, as a nurse, what’s your preference? What things do I want to make sure my computer has? Where can I get a good deal?

I'm a brand new, full-fledged, fresh-out-of-school RN! And better yet, I landed the job of my dreams working with children. I love what I do, and while everyday on the job is a new (and sometimes scary) experience, I'm taking it all in - absorbing everything I can about this amazing profession we all fell in love with.
