Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

Mac usage at University

I spotted an interesting quote recently

Chowdhry said 70 percent of college freshman are entering school with Macs

Unfortunately there is no link to where the actual data comes from, a while back I created a
table of links giving details of Mac usage at universities, I thought it might be useful to update the table.
