Is it powerful for civil designings and what are the softwares does it support? Which one is best for civil softwares Air or Pro?
Civil designing softwares like AutoCAD Civil 3D, MicroStation, Autodesk InfraWorks 360, Bentley InRoads, AutoTURN, SkyCiv Structural 3D etc., need a dedicated graphics processing unit to do advance work on them or to fully utilize their potential. Neither the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air is powerful enough to do any professional work on them as they do not have any dedicated graphic card to do all the 3D rendering work. They have a basic integrated graphics which simply doesn't suit for the task. While in the windows domain, you can easily buy an i5 or i7 with a dedicated graphics of at least 2 GB on which all the above softwares will run smoothly.

Macbook pro 15 or 17 will be good.

Which laptop is good for computer science engineering students and coding application we need to purchase or it is inbuilt in this?
For computer science engineering students, all you need is a simple laptop and Linux operating system (like Ubuntu or Centos or Fedora etc) as in the industry. Linux is used for development and most of the servers run on Linux. Now, if you specifically try to learn iOS app development, then you need an Apple laptop or computer. If you are interested in .net technologies or Windows app development, then you need a windows system. Other than that you are not going to need a Mac or Windows generally, like for web development, software development in any programming language (Java, Python, C, C++, Ruby, etc.).

Mac is certainly the best option, 1. battery backup- easily 10-12 hours
2. Flexibility- Yes you can even install windows via boot camp and it performs better than any windows machine around. Yes, it is user-friendly once you get to know how to use all components, it's better than windows. Build quality is awesome.

SSD are faster than HDD but way more expensive

Can we play games in this laptop?
You can play some games but not all the games, games which are available in apple store you can play but majority of the high end games won't run on mac because it does not have a dedicated graphic card. In this same budget you can buy almost any windows laptop with quite powerful graphic capabilities and on them you can run virtually any games.
By Umairsa** Mark Helpful (197)
Yes, you can. I have used bootcamp and installed Win10. It's safe and provided by Apple itself. Games like Far Cry 2, COD 4 and other multiplayer games works great. It supports 200 FPS easily.
