Yet another goal to save for...

I want one of these...my trusty laptop that I've had since my junior year of college has served me well, but I'd really like an upgrade. Hey I'm only human, and my laptop is frustratingly slow. So I've started yet another savings pot for a MacBook and added my fall semester financial aid refund check to it (but I am not adding this goal as a sidebar). I am only supposed to spend the refund on school-related expenses, and I think a reliable computer counts as a school-related expense right? Unless some type of computer catastrophe strikes in the interim, I hope to fully fund this goal and purchase a MacBook sometime next year.

So pretty!

You can get pretty good student discounts on Macs at most universities. Or find someone who works at Apple retail, you can get the "family & friends" discount of 15%. :)

oh i love it... i might be able to use my teachers discount.. 10%, but I like Maus' idea of finding someone who works there and getting 15% off

Great mac book. I have the leopard desktop to that at my job. I can take a mac or leave it alone. I think in my job environment, there are some key things that are missing as far as working with business application. The built-in web editor "iweb" really, really sucks. Replace that with a more robust editor if you decided to get their notebook.
