You know...I've just placed an order for over £1k for a MacBook Pro base model. And now I'm thinking 'Do I really need all that fancy stuff'. Because with my educational discount I can get a Whitebook for £618.05 - Minus QuidCo which would be about £15 - £20 and then get the free printer and £14 iPod which combined could both probably sell around the £140 - £150 ballpark. So around £450 for a Whitebook compared to £1k for a MBP. Anyone think I'm mad? Would work out cheaper than the cheap refurbs!
