So I have wanted a macbook ever since they have been released. I will be heading off to college this fall and want to take an amazing macbook. Now I have a problem. I'm going through a year of college and then leaving on a mission for my church where my macbook would just sit around, collecting dust for two years. So I have three options. 1. buy a macbook now, the current one, and hope it lasts me 6 years, four years of college and 2 on a mission. 2. wait until they update the macbook, and still be in the 6 year predicament. 3. take my parents crappy laptop for the first year of college. and when I get back from my mission in 2011 use the money I have saved now and get the current version then. I'm just having a hard time deciding. I don't want to spend the money now, then in 4 years feel like I have to get a new one and not be able to finish college with it, but I would like to go to college with something reliable.... any advice?
