Default the same ole lapop question

i know this has been on here many of times and one by me. ok i have a desktop already that i play my games on. im starting college again in august and im going all day 9-9 and im wanting a laptop to do my school work on while im at school. i have been looking at dell a lot but i have heard nothing but bad things about them on here. i really like macs i used them all through high school. i have been looking at the black mac book. now im now occasionally i might want to play wow or games like it on my laptop if i have nothing to do at school. what do you guys recommend for both mac and pc sides?. im going to get this with a student loan but i do not want to spend over like 1700 i was approved for $2000 through dell but f### 29% interest. im not a hardcore gamer so i do not mind playing at lower settings on this thing. sorry i know this is long lol

macbooks are great for school dont have to worry about viruses or spyware while doing research. steel is right you can run windows on a macbook but you cant run MAC OS on a PC
