As the title suggests I am hopefully going to university in September of this year. Although I don't own a mac yet, I have been following MacRumours for a while now. My situation is as follows and I hope you can help: 1. Want to buy the newly released MacBook Pro 13" . Is this good enough for a Dentistry student? (Low end/High end??) (Strengths/Weaknesses??) 2. I wish to get a large external monitor (Non Apple - Student budget) for when I'm back in the dorms. I hear Dell do a good one with DisplayPort. Any recommendations? 3. Do you have any advice on any software that would be good for a Dentistry student or software that is good for university students in general? 4. I'm waiting on the 'Back to School' promotion. Anyone know when that will begin? (Free iPod Touch?) 5. Any other hardware you recommend I take? Have been following MacRumors and the forums for a while as I like to do my research and I'm aware that there are plenty of knowledgeable people in the forums. Hopefully you can help me. Eagerly awaiting your replies .
