I'm heading to college in September for a CS degree. I'm just wondering if I really need a laptop (well, MBP for this matter) for now. Based on the Macrumors Buyer's Guide, MBPs get their refresh around 8-10 months average which is approximately around October to December. (2 - 4 months since my college starts) So my question is, How is it to be a freshman CS student? Do I need to carry a laptop during those early months inside the class? Will I be having some programming projects as EARLY as that which I need a laptop? group projects? I currently have a pretty good desktop which runs Windows and Linux and I also just got an iPad 2 from my GF as gift. What I'm thinking is 2 - 4 months of college is all about lectures? Am I right with this? Since I have the iPad 2, I can pretty much use it for those purposes until the new Refresh comes out. I'm really willing to BUY it now but 2-4 months of wait is not bad ayt? I heard the refresh would be new case design ,faster for sure and etc which is worth the wait. Any CS students out there? Thanks.
