hey guys, im about a day away from buying my imac and i just decided im going to college in the fall. that will mean that ill also need a new laptop for classes. i decided on a macbook so can you guys help me think of an excuse to get my dad to help me buy one(or buy one for me) before school. i was thinking of just saying: "I need a macbook for school, its required for online classes over ichat and i need iWork 09 for my writting/math classes." also, ive always been partial to white mac products but i didnt know if it'd be smarter to go with the lowest alluminum referbed if i could ever find one on apples website. please post all opinions, but please no "just go with a macbook you dont need both a macbook and a imac" because i truely NEED the imac.
