    I thought I should tell all of the loyal thread readers on this forums.
    I've decided to wait to get my MBP until I have all the money.

    I thought about it. When it came last night to actually start applying to borrow money.... I just couldn't do it.

    I'm now planning on waiting until WWDC to get my MBP with all the goodies. (Like some people told me.)

    So. This now leaves me w/o any way to watch movies on my four day trip out to Oregon.

    I would love to spend all the money I have now (not more than maybe 120 or so) on a portable DVD player for car trips and such.

    Any ideas?

    Good plan on waiting. Actually, when I get away, I like to leave my laptop and DVD player at home, as I like to get away from all the distractions of everyday life. But that's just me. :-x No recommendations on the DVD player, as I use my laptop. :-x

    No sales tax in Oregon. You can save a few bucks to purchase it over there. If in the Porland area, lookup a store called Frys and they will also give you a good deal on one.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a on-your-seat kind of model that maybe plugs in with an AC adapter. :D

    I'll try searching the usual places.

    The Samsung ones are very very nice but a bit pricey.
