As a student , you should buy the computer according to course, curriculum and syllabus of your college. Talk with your teachers, follow what the seniors did, and understand what the course need .

All the os's have their own pros and cons .... you are to choose on the basis of your need.

If you buy a PC, you can install Linux/Ubuntu/ Fedora etc, as well as Windows, but not Mac OS. On the contrary, if you buy a mac, you can use not only mac, but windows and linux also using boot camp.

Good answer.

A lot of it depends on what language you'll be programming in, too.

If you're going to be programming to support course projects, can't emphasize too much the need to check out the details with the faculty -- BEFORE you buy or install anything. While ALL the PCs listed CAN be used to do some form of programming, how well each will work depends critically on the details of the course requirements.

And NO, Ubuntu (being based on Linux) is not the same as UNIX.

As to which is better, Mac or Windows, once again, it depends on the demands of the coursework -- especially regarding which programming languages are required, and which (if any) application development suites are required.

Another genre relating to Cyberpunk
Yes, I'm interested into extreme high-tech. There's a genre of Science fiction called Cyberpunk. High Tech but slum-like conditions, oppressive government and such. Is there a genre that is only High Tech, no slums or oppression? What word would describe such conditions?
