    I have a MacBook that was made in November 2006. I used it throughout my undergrad and I'm starting law school in the fall. Right now I'm running Snow Leopard. It also has 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, whatever that mean exactly. It's getting pretty slow.

    I'm wondering if, for the purposes of law school, it's a better idea to bring my computer into an Apple Store and maybe get upgrades done to it, or if it would be a better idea to buy a cheap(ish) MacBook Pro?

    I don't really do any gaming or graphic design but I want to stay with Mac. I mean, it's lasted about 6.5 years, which I think is pretty awesome.

    Any advice appreciated.

    I would get the new system. The reason for this is because you need something that is going to be reliable for for your time in law school. The system may work now but right when you are doing something extremely important, the system goes down. I would say you got a lot of life out of it, and now its time for a new one.

    In that case I'd suggest that you get a 11" MBA... Unless you need a CD Drive... Then I would suggest getting the low end MBP.
