Ok most probably I will be going to University after atleast two years, possibly three. One of the Universities I am considering gives the students laptops (windows though ). I also need a computer upgrade now but I will be able to hold off a purchase. If my Univeristy was not going to give me a laptop, I would certainly go and buy a Macbook NOW. It would come in handy at the U. But considering that the Univeristy will be giving a laptop, maybe I wont go to the University and all the other possibilities, what do you think I should go for a Macbook or iMac. iMac because it will have some more power and should be able to last longer and the screen!
