Hey all.. I need a powerbook.. dont we all. < your thinking > Well , I have the money. But here is my problem. I live in a small town, so there isnt an apple store, infact there is only a connecting point here and they dont have any powerbooks. They say that they may get some in soon, though and will call me. If they can find the phone, their that smart. I want to buy from a store so that I can see if the LCD has any stuck pixels! I HAte stuck pixels , its a pet peeve! Ok, at the store they dont have the ability to give me my educators discount! So it would be the full price, but I would have no stuck pixels. If i could get a unit from them. If I bought online then I have no idea what the pixel situation will be. I could get a clear lcd or even a triple pixel threat! But I would get my educators discount, which is rather large. But~ if i buy online i get the educators discount and can do a BTO with a faster HD the 5400 RPM, yum. 4200 is so worst. But Apple's BTO policy is that there are no returns exchanges or anything on a BTO, they dont want to know your name after you buy it. Not that its all that different when you buy at the apple store anyway without the BTO, they still would charge you 10% on a returned powerbook, you get 10 days to return an unopened box. If you open it, it cost you about 400 bucks! Thats an expensive 5 minutes. So buy from a local store and get the nice lcd on the powerbook, but pay top dollar and endure the HD speed. Or buy online with Apple and whatever I get <lcd wise> I keep! Any ideas or opinions or anything would be appreciated. The pain is getting bad have to make a decision soon!
