    Anybody have one?? My birthday is next month turning 18. And i dont know what to get. My cousin today told me what about a imac laptop.. Since i am going to collge next year it would be good to have. My dad would give me his dell laptop, but i hear imac laptops are better and more college type. SO does anyone have it? Are they good? Do you recommend it?

    Thanks

    If you're referring to the macbook pro I will be picking one up soon for College. I believe that they are very useful and would come in handy for college.

    Possibly in terms of storage but other than that their practically the same. Or at least that's what I've heard.

    yeah.... does anyone have it? i wonder if its worth it... i had had a dell for a few years ( desktop) so is imac notbook, easy to adapt too?

    By looking at info, macbook pro is better. SO does anyone have the mac book pro?? Its $2000. Please, if anyone has it, tell me how it is. Is it better then dell? Does it have a lot of problems? How is the battery life? Can i use Msn messenger, aim etc on it?

    the macbook pro has a faster CPU, more HDD space, better gfx card and more RAM but is $1000 more expensive. however if your going to collage for graphic design (like me) you will want to get a macbook pro to hand the graphic creating programs better. (i hopefully getting one soon!)

    IS a macbook good? i am going to college next year. So i would need it for, HW, research, writing papers, internet etc.. would that fufill my needs??? By the look of it, the pro would be a waste of 1000 because i dont need all of that stuff. right?

    My friend is about to get one, I don't think they are that good. I would stick to a PC. Toshibas look nice, and Dells are great.

    I own mac book pro and it's really nice... I don't use dell computers, and i don't think it compares to a mac book pro. A mac book pro is way better than a dell laptop imo. But it also depends on what you use your computer for.

    If you are using programs only made for windows os, then macbook pro is not for you. You can use MSN, aim (or ichat that comes with osx; you can log in using an aim account), yahoo, skype,..etc on a mac. It is easy to adapt to, and has some very nice features...

    If you buy it from apple's official website (www.apple.com), you can get student discount of $200 less than regular price.

    Hope this helps... :cool:

    What os? Well the most things i use are. Internet explorrer, microsoft word, aim, msn messenger... thats the things i need the most. can the pro take care of those things??I have to look at the fact in a year, i need the best one... So the macbook might be old by then and pro might still be nice and getting updates...

    If you are not using firefox, I would suggest you start using that..
    they stopped updating IE for the mac, I believe. Firefox works on mac too.
    And yes, there's MS Office for mac, as well as aim and msn messenger.

    LOL, you got a lot to learn.

    What exactly are you going to college for? If you're worried about finances at all, just look for a solid Windows XP Pro lappy.... You only need a mac for the arts.

    Macs are fast, but WAY different than PCs. They have a clover leaf key, lol.

    leaning towards child education...... i know, i need to learn alot....not really worried about the finances, most concerned with the best choice... i heard today some college suggest a mac laptop... im trying to figure it all out. my dad has a dell laptop which i would get next year and he would get a new one. its nice.. but my cousin who is in college says its a nice laptop and a differnt cousin who is an adult, doesnt have one but says they are very nice and would be great in college.. im turning 18, so i might be able to get it as a gift if all cousins chip in, if they wanted too.i dont see them each spending 1000. My cousin said his wife knows somone for apple so maybe there is a deal or something. But if i can even get it for a good deal, i might get it.....

    Personally, I am not good at using a Mac, I would go with a dell.

    Buy a traditional notebook...less expensive and more practical.
