I'm a student and I'm having a hard time choosing between the base 21.5" or base MBP 13. My issue is the portability part. I'll be a commuter student next year and wouldn't mind coming home to a powerhouse and not having a laptop on me (some fears of getting it stolen). Or I could get a MBP and just carry it around, ehh. I'm stuck between the two. Powerhouse all-in-one or MBP portable. I would like to play Battlefield 3 this summer via bootcamp, but that isn't a large concern. Are there any students or past students here that have gone through what I am going through now?
