Ok, so like I've said in my other thread, I'm trying to decide between a Macbook Pro 13" (stock model) and the Toshiba Portege R700-S1312. This is for my high school next year, and these are two choices: bring a laptop of your choice or buy the school "fully-supported" laptop. What I'll pay for both: 1. Pay a yearly fee of $300 for books Macbook Pro Option: 1. Buy my own protection plan (AppleCare) 2. Not have onsite support, and have a virtual desktop Toshiba Portege Option: 1. The school will give me the laptop and let me keep it for $1200 (+$300 book fee would be $1500) 2. onsite support if anything ever happens for the full 4 years plus accident protection + desktop at school for school stuff vs. the virtual one So it would basically be $1750 for the Macbook Pro and $1500 for the Toshiba. So, I'm basically leaning toward the Toshiba, but the lust of the Macbook Pro is really tempting... HELP ME PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
