Well I am getting a MBP. Don't know when but I know I have atleast 3000 saved up. I'm just waiting because I want it to still be newer when I get to college (I am starting my senior year of highschool). Plus I want to wait as long as possible for upgrades and/or price drops. Anyways... it is going to be the only computer I have in college. Even if I could get a desktop computer, I wouldnt see the point of having two, although I would consider getting a desk, bigger display, mouse, and keyboard for my MBP for when I'm at our house on campus. So anyways, how would a 15 inch mbp with 2.16 Ghz, 2Gb ram, 100 GB hard drive function as a desktop computer? I know that usually laptops aren't as powerful as desktops so most people only use laptops for on the go purposes.
