Howdy, I am going to be a Junior in high school next year, and I almost have convinced my parents to buy me a laptop for college early! I have used Windows my entire life (mainly b/c my dad is a hardcore Win. fan, UGH!) I'm just sick of it... viruses, etc!!! But finnally I have fallen for the MacBook Pro!!! It just looks co cool, and is running on Intel technology (which dad likes!!!) I have 2 delimas: 1) I don't completely have my dad convinced a "Mac" is the best thing for me. I plan on mayjoring in either consumer electronic's some type of eingenering degree, or in the tech. medical feild. With the recent "Boot Camp" I feel that I can fully work with Mac OS X, and Windows, on a solid laptop. Any suggestions on how to confirm that this computer will work out with this feild!!! 2) At Texas A&M (TAMU) I plan to be in the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band wich is affiliated with the Corps of Cadets (Basically Military training/lifestyle) Well, in the CoC you cannot bring a TV on campus So I was planning on getting the 17" and bassically using it as a DVD player/TV. BUT I have heard it may be too much too heavy/bundlesome to carry around the worlds largest (acerage wise) campus!?!?! I don't think I can convince my parent to buy me an LCD and a smaller MBP. I wish I could convince my parents to get me this set-up! With A Few Changes: Apple Wireless Mouse MBP (of course) Different Speakers Thanks, --Jake P.S. Any pics of dorm setups would be awesome! Also, I know verry little about Ram, Processor, etc... Any advice on upgrades, mods, or origional options would be helpful!
