    Where can I find one of these?

    Im talking about the recent Macbook pro with the alu body. That would seem nice, a black finish with the aluminum.
    :mad:

    If you want to do him good... Well let's just say 'helping' is more like 'hurting' with this guy.

    Any color variation will be a custom job and either you will do it yourself, or you will pay some cash for it. When it comes to customs and one offs you can't really complain about pricing.

    I think the incase idea would be the best.

    That is if the OP can get his MBP, somehow with no money and no job.

    Hey PoloDude, I'll sell you mine for $100 if you can respond within the next hour. :p

    Oh why are we tormenting the poor kid. Maybe he just needs love and he's been abused all his life.

    McDonald is always hiring new people so he could get a job there. :)))
    Anyway, even if you study you still have some time for a part time job the question is always: Do you want to? Do you have to?

    :))

    Lets see if he comes back soon with his purchase :)))

    Speaking of McDonalds, if you're in the Los Angeles Area, there is a Micky D's less than a mile away from the USC campus that is hiring for their "Power Hours" from 12p-4p for two hour blocks and they'll pay you $12/HR and you can work for only two hours a day, 3-5 days per week.... Won't affect your GPA....

    It seems the OP has like 5 minutes to cash in on that $100 MBP deal :p.

    Anyway, waiting tables is decent money. It's stressful and tiring, but on a good night you can go home with over a hundred bucks in tip. With the small paycheck it gives, it equalizes out to about $15-20/hour, which is pretty good for something that requires almost no experience; pretty good for high school or college kids.

    It's how I was able to afford my first MBP :), took only about 2-3 months to save up enough.
