    Hello, I am going to be buying a laptop. I am going to college in September. I am not just going to use it for that. I am a musician and I plan on using it for recording using Pro Tools and Logic...what do I need? thanks

    You'll want a MacBook Pro

    Definitely the MBP.

    Certainly an MBP. If for nothing else then because you will have a firewire port- Two in fact-.

    You'll also get: a better screen, a matte screen (preferable) more oomph, better resolution, swappable batteries, two USB-ports, and on and on.

    MBP. Though the macbook will be fine, the MBP will fly right through what you want it to do.

    If you want the bigger matte screen, and the graphics power, then the MacBook Pro is the computer to get. Also the line will be updated before September, so wait until the update before buying. Also don't forget to use your education discount, and your free iPod deal.

    I thought of mentioning a thinkpad, but figured he had his mind set on an Apple.

    A MacBook would do you very well. Of course, you can always spend more and get the Pro.
