I was recently accepted to a grad school in Britain and will be heading over next September. I also happen to have recently upgraded from a Titanium Powerbook to an Al iMac 20" with some extra RAM. I love the big screen of the iMac. I'm a writer and it makes all the difference to type on a dedicated keyboard with a display at eye level. I don't know how I managed. My problem is that I will have to decide whether to get a laptop for my trip overseas or to ship the iMac over. There would be no other reason to get a laptop, since I'm uncomfortable with one in the classroom. I feel the limiting variables here are the chance my computer might be damaged in transit, especially since I no longer have the original packaging, versus the price and relative uselessness of acquiring a Macbook to go. Price is very much an issue because I am already burying myself in loans and am entering a career that has no guarantee of success. Doubtless Apple will have new, interesting products to consider by September next year, but I was wondering if anyone had a clever way at hand for me to get my iMac to Britain inexpensively. I considered buying an iMac case to carry it on to my flight, for example, but the consensus on these forums seems to be that I would have a problem with the maximum size requirements of whichever airline I use. Hmmm...!
