    Well this year in high school, seniors are getting Laptops from their parents for college. These people are bashing me about how their laptop is this and that. One has a remote control and the other has a loud speaker. They compair their new laptops to my old TiBook 1Ghz and talk ***** about macs.

    Should I buy a AlBook 17" to show them how good mac's are?
    What can I do about the speaker?

    I have an idea about the remote control already, bluetooth cell phone.
    I have the money but I want to save it towards a PowerMac and 30" monitor at the end of my freshmen year in college. BTW I am not a spoiled little brat, it takes me about 2-3 years to save up toward getting a loaded Mac ($3,000) if I get money off my lil bro too.

    I would get the 17" powerbook and when you can afford the 30" display, I would buy it and connect it to your powerbook. Then once you save up for the PowerMac, I would then connect it to the display and sell the PB.

    We combine our money to get all the nice apple stuff. Example: Last year his AlBook 15" came from both me and him saving up.

    THe 17" is a nice desktop replacement machine as an alternative to a Mini, but an awkward portable. The AlBook 15" is still the sweet spot.
