Help please! Windows for Mac or buy a cheap PC?
So I'm having a dilemma and I would really love some advice. This is actually an ongoing saga that has been getting more and more complicated each day. So, I'm presently a student but have decided to purchase Storyline 2 to build my expertise as a developer and hopefully take on some side projects (I also want to take advantage of student pricing). But I'm having a lot of trouble getting SL2 up and running.
I initially planned to install Virtual Box on my Mac laptop and run SL2. But as I went this route, I realized my laptop doesn't have much memory (I've only got 21GB free). I also realized I'd need to buy Windows for Mac, which would cost about 150$ - remember I'm a student, so every cent counts!
Others have recommended that I purchase a second, PC laptop, something inexpensive that would be my SL2 computer (also I wouldn't have to buy Windows). However, I went to Best Buy and the basic computers were around 550$. They had between 4-6GB of room. I don't know if I should bite the bullet and buy one, or if it's silly because if I'm going to buy a work computer, I should buy something of quality.
Option 3 is that I go to the Mac store and get more memory. I buy Windows for Mac, use Virtual Box and hopefully (finally) get SL2.
I'd love to hear if other people have found themselves in this situation and what you have done.
