Let me start off by saying I know nothing about computers except how to use them. Now that we have that out of the way...we've always had a pc, but my husband uses a mac at work. Because he is in an artistic field (graphic design and video editing) and Macs are better for such things apparently and he is starting to do more from home, he decided we needed a Mac at home. But I'm anti-Mac (for silly reasons), so I wanted a pc. So...we got one of the new Macs (released in early Fall) that runs both OS10 and Windows and we've both been very pleased. I can't think of any problems we've had with either side running "normally". Perhaps this is something you might consider? It really has been the best of both worlds. Now, you mentioned a Mac Book, so I'm assuming you're talking about a laptop?? I don't know if they have them that can run both programs or not, but it might be worth checking on.
Good luck on your decision!
