Hey everyone. I am going off to college! I am 16 years old, and my parents have agreed to buy me a laptop. I already own a Desktop that runs off of Windows Vista, but I need a laptop for mobility and so I can do my work at the college because it is nearly a 50 mile commute. The problem is that they want to get a laptop running off of Windows because they are far cheaper and the specs are higher. However, I want a Mac laptop becaause of the stability, the fact I can't get a virus on it (I get viruses on my PC all the time ) and the fact that I can't play games on it will help me quit my game addiction >.<! Macs are basically the best for college, I can live in a worry free world, free of viruses and annoying windows' errors... My problem is that the apple site has a small selection of laptops, and they start at 1099! My parents won't go for that. Surely there is a wider selection of laptops I can get? I can also settle with an Mac computer that can take the place of my PC, but still run off my moniter and USB mouse/keyboard. I want a mac so badly. What do you think I should get? Any suggestions? If I have to I will resort to buying used products on eBay.
