What type of Laptop should I get for college?

For starters, I am a high school junior and am 100% sure I want to be a radiologic technologist (specializing in all types or radiology (taking x-ray film) i.e. x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, Mammograms, Ultrasounds, etc.) My dad wants to get me a computer that would be best for me in college so my question is: A Mac or a PC and as for price, it doesn't matter. Which one would a radiologic technologist use?? Right now, I'm using a PC but leaning towards getting a Mac because they are becoming much more popular and being used for more jobs. Which should I choose? Thanks!
