Alright, so I'm getting ready for a buy soon, and my situation has gotten a little strange... So I'm off to Uni in October, which is great. I've got an Asus EEEPC, which I bought as a basic internet ready cheap notepad for essays in cafes, and other such pretentious humanity student activities. I was never planning to go for anything apart from my desktop for Uni. However, the thought of lugging a screen and tower started to leave me thinking about how far student loans and the like could get me laptop wise. And so, as my desktop replacement (keep the PC at home for when I'm back), I settled on a MBP, not sure about 17/15 but i'm sure the answer will come. Two things have messed it all up. First, the desktop broke down. Hard drive just dead completely, graphics card blown to pieces, and it was due a replacement soon anyway since it was so old. Then, I've been offered some commissions as a writer for a PCgaming magazine. Which I#m definitely taking. Which means somehow, somewhere, i'm going to need a gaming PC that will last a good few years, and be upgradable. But I also need that laptop portability for Uni. Am I missing something, or is my only option to have the gaming PC (hopefully about £500 self-build, then upgrade later), the MBP so that I've got a decent sized screen for essay sessions, and the EEE for taking to lectures and stuff? If it is, as a student going to University in the UK, what would be the best way to try and save money, in terms of rebates, free ipods, refurbs and the like? Phew Thanks EDIT: Oh, and I use an LG secret, so might there be a decent phone sycing option either on the Mac or EEE that someone knows about?
