I am applying for a grant and I do qualify so that I can get a new computer for next school year because my computer is just giving me too much trouble. I want a laptop for a replacement for my desktop. If I were to apply for the 13 MBP which has a significant performance upgrade to my pc, I'll be downgrading in terms of GPU. I have a Radeon HD 4670 I JUST purchased back in feb before my computer started getting even worse and should I go the way of the 13 inch MBP I'll be getting a GMA HD 3000. If i configure the most basline macbook pro that will suit my needs, its about $2172. Morally, would that be asking too much from the grant foundation? this is my only option, my dad died and my mom goes into surgery this month for a complete hip replacement and so I have no other way of receiving a good powerful reliable computer. This is no government grant, its a foundation that helps students by giving them grants for things they need from the funds they raise.
