I prefer a PC as the Mac is really expensive in my country.

Mac's are certainly suitable for college, depending on her courses of course. You can get MS Office for Mac just as you can for PC, if anything its more stable on mac because macs are just better ;). Seriously though you should always base the decision on what system to buy based on the uses, I know you said college but that could mean a range of things, if she is taking alot of business courses it might be best to buy a PC, however for the most part a mac can do anything a PC can do but will cost less to maintain.

Well, I prefer a PC, but it depends on what her studies are like, what software she will need for her classes, as well as her personal preferences. Since I don't really know any of that, I probably can't answer this question very well. Sorry!
