I'm thinking of buying a new high-end 15 inch PowerBook with a BTO reduced HD and a combo drive instead of the SuperDrive. With the education discount (college rocks!!) I can get it for $2050! I need the portability and I need a machine that has enough to get through four years of college, and still be a usable machine in 2007. I think that I have found the perfect point inbetween price and functionality for my needs, but if someone here can prove me wrong... I will be ordering it this evening (going for the iPod deal as well, so I must order now), so if anyone has a good point to make, please say it before 8pm central standard time. Thanks alot, and even though I have been on Macs my whole life, I look forward to actually owning one of my very own.
