Laptop purchase recommendation
Not recommending Macs or Chromebooks, because most of the engineering software does not run in them. AutoCAD, Matlab and Mathematica work in Macs, the other software will have to run from My.Apps. All applications will have to be accessed from My.Apps when using a Chromebook.
