I'm trying to decide whether to get a Mac Book Pro or a PC. The answers to this question could effect my decision.
I have 2 NTFS external hard drives I've been using with my old Windows XP machine. One is my main external drive and the other one is for backup only. I have read that the Mac does have read-only support for NTFS but I'm not sure if this is true. If the Mac can read my hard drives, what I want to do is to reformat my main drive for use with the Mac and copy everything from my backup drive to the SSD on the Mac, then reformat my backup drive for Mac use. Is this possible, and if not, how much would the software cost that will either allow the Mac to read and write to my NTFS drives, or convert my drives to whatever format the Mac uses? Thanks.
