    Question Laptop advice.

    I'm looking for a small notebook. I'm going to need a new laptop this Summer as the one I have now I share with my mom and I'm moving out so I will need my own. I'm looking for something with a screen size 12 inches or under and is great for making movies and playing them. I'm open to Mac or PC since I've owned both, I really like PC but I know Mac is great with making movies so I'm torn. I also need something with a great price and I know iBooks are like $1200 so that's not bad.

    Go to the Apple website to the store. A couple options are to go to the right side of the screen and enter that you are a student and it will ask where. You get a decent discount there. Also, look at the refurb options. My son bought a refurb, comes with a year warranty and we always buy the Apple Care. They have/had (before Christmas) iBook/MacBook refurbs for $800.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    1200 FOR AN IBOOK!!!!!!
    EagleWings...my Ibook G4 with panther is coming in tommorow straight from the apple store, and I got it for 400 dollars (but tha was with my dads company discount)
    The refurbished ones are just as good as the brand new ones, and they come with a 1 year warranty in case something goes wrong. Mine comes in tommorow, so as soon as i'm back from Disneyland i'll check around it and post a review for you

    the new macbooks are awesome! i have the dell 710m, its small, wide screen and just as powerful as any other! the newer version is the 1205? i think... if you want cool dell coupons go to mrrebates.com and you'll find some great coupons for instant discounts, plus at the end you get like a 4% rebate from mrrebates.com!!!

    I would KILL for a MacBook myself. A friend of mine and her husband just got one and they can't stop raving about it.

    Re: Laptop advice.

    I've always been partial to Mac myself. In November I bought my daughter an HP laptop for her birthday, and spent as much on it as I would of a Macbook. But all of her programs/schoolwork etc was PC based so I had to go that direction for her.

    But for myself I'd go with a Macbook with the new Intel chips. If you have to run a PC program, the new Macs will run them with Bootcamp. I'm going to be looking into the rehab program myself, since the only think I want a laptop for is for a toy for me to play around with, and I don't need to spend ton-o-money just to do email and games.
