Will Windows 7 Home be sufficient?
Will Office Home/Student be sufficient?
Is there any additional software I'll need?
Am I completely crazy not to get a CAV bundle?
Also: First time poster, I'm completely psyched to meet you all in August!
Being a Mac user, I don't know nothing 'bout Windows. I can say, though, that the MacBook I bought through Cav was a good price and, even better, the two times I've needed repairs (due to my own, mysterious ability to harm the hardware of every electronic device I own) I've dropped it off with them and they've given me a loaner while they fixed it. Didn't cost me a dime.
For software, I agree-you only need Office and you'll be golden.
