Patrick,
go for a macbook!
The additional cost and time to learn new PC logic is more than made up for by the the great ability to take your Mac to the apple store nearby and talk to a REAL person that will actually spend time with you trying to solve any and all problems you may be having. Not to mention great media capabilities and few viruses, etc. best of luck!

I'm with Steve. My dad's iBook is pushing...5 years at this point and everyone else I know's has had a similar lifespan.

Plus, I'm sure you can find _someone_ at Maryland to hook you up with the student discount. Heck, I'll do it. Now to go see if 'alumna buying reporter a laptop' is a secondary or primary violation.

Colm and Steve ---

Thanks for the advice. Going the Mac route tends to be the overwhelming sentiment. Never had one, but at this point I see no reason in sticking with anything similar to what I have.

Gotta agree....my monitor is shot on my older Dell laptop and I'm going to need to replace it soon. I borrowed my sisters 13" macbook pro for my fantasy draft on Sunday and man is that an awesome laptop! Battery life is phenomenal too. I had it running on battery power for about 4 hours and it still had plenty of juice when I was done.

I went through two Dell laptops in less than four years. Not going to happen again.
