Macs gaining ground, in Stanford ALR at least

We had our first Advanced Legal Research class on Tuesday.  I was really surprised to see so many Apple computers in the audience.  In one row, of nine students, all but one had a laptop cover with a glowing Apple logo.  And then I read our alum Matt Asay’s post on his Open Source blog, “The Vista from here is terrible as Mac attracts more converts.”  So in Thursday’s class, our next session, I conducted an in-class survey and found that among our 45 students:

     25 have PCs

     20 have Macs
