My son is saving to buy a new mac to take to college in the fall (I'm helping out a little). The eternal question is laptop or desktop. He's decided to go with a pro machine either way, but is unsure which is most conducive to dorm life (mostly writing papers, internet stuff, probably [undoubtably] some gaming, etc.). When I was in college we used typewriters and Atari 2600s, so I am no help. Any college students out there care to chime in on this question? Thanks!
