I'm considering buying a Macbook very soon. It'll be the lowest end model but with a 1gb RAM upgrade. Would it be best for me to buy it online or from the store? Something things to consider... I'm in the UK. I'll be using a higher education discount (is the same discount available in store as it is online?) If i buy it online will I have to wait forever just because i asked for more RAM? will it be quicker from a store? will they just give it to me then n there? Also i'm very fussy about things like dead pixels - in that I want none! If i got it from a store will they let me turn it on n look at the screen before taking it outta the shop? Also, is using windows xp with bootcamp the same speed as running windows xp on a pc with the same specs? So for example, because office 2004 is not universal, will it be faster running office on windows xp through bootcamp than running office 2004 on mac os? (i know if it is faster it'll be only marginal but thats not the point - i'm just wondering about the concept) Also, I know theres a separate thread for this but no harm in asking here, if anyone has any promo codes I can use in the UK higher education store they'd be much appreciated!! Also any other buying advice/tips will be appreciated. Cheers!
