I am hopefully going to buy my first Mac, the iBook, soon because A) I am only $270 away from $1000 and B) my birthday is coming soon which means money which means first Mac (hopefully). My mom and I were discussing about what I am all going to get, she doesn't understand half the things I talk about, I'm a computer geek. I was talking to her about the Office 2004 for Students and she said we can buy the software for you but I will have to repay her. I was also looking at the $50 rebate that comes with it. My question is, would it be best to buy Office now and have it ready for school or should I wait a little bit until I have the money for Office and use something else? Thanks a lot!
