    well, soon after i got my imac i realized i needed the portability of a laptop. i missed taking my old macbook on trips, using it in bed, downstairs, or just up at java junction (our version of starbucks).

    so i am saving to buy a secondary laptop (macbook) and want to know what one i should get. I want something new, not refurbished. Should i go with the base end macbook (999)(student discount) of the higher end blackbook for 1399? dont say the one in the middle, because for like 200 more i would def get the black.

    so do i pay a little and get a good secondary computer, or do i get the top of the line macbook, and enjoy it for years to come?

    It sounds like you're the sort of person who knows what he/she wants...you're willing to save, you're willing to pay for new, you're willing to pay for the color, etc. I'd say do it right (for you)... keep saving and get the black one that you really want.
