Hello all. I am new to Mac OS X and I would like some advice.

I am wanting to get a laptop because I am a programmer and need to program on the go. Before I buy a laptop I would like to get one that would work good with Snow Leopard.

I want to buy the Mac Box Set and install retail so that I can update to the newer updates...and well, still support the mac product. I also want to run it side by side with Windows 7 if that would be possible.

Is there any laptops that you can suggest that will run smooth with both Windows7 and Mac OS X?

Here is a link to one I was looking at,

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS7745G-6662 NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm BD Combo ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

would this work...? or?


if you do suggest one, is there any tutorials you can link me to?

someone please point me in the right direction.


sorry if this is in the wrong section.
