    I thought that law schools administer exams that require you to have a PC laptop (at least this is the case for all my friends attending law school). Hopefully you checked with your law school on this? :eek:

    I've never owned a 12" PB... but if I could have just one Mac that's the one I'd pick. I like my 15", but the 12" is SO portable.

    Welcome to the club!

    I think it is a move that you won't ever regret... but the only down side is you now may have started a new obsession or compulsion... to not only use your new toy as much as possible... but also talk to mates about it at every opportunity!

    Oh yes and then there is the cravings... for even more Mac gadgets!
    So many in the range... all look amazing... and [drewl] you'll want more and more.
