    To do what exactly?


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    Depends upon the lab. I don't think there is a standard. I'm not a biologist, but we have both a Mac and PCs in our lab. The PC tends to run our instrumentation, like the GeoTek, but the Mac is what we use for our spreadsheet applications (and Pandora at absurd volumes).
