Glad I could convince someone of the merits of buying a mac. My vote is for apple. I just bought (and am typing on) the first Mac in what I hope will be a long line. Sad as it is, PCs just aren't cutting it, or are at least not as good as Macs have become; though, admittedly, renwoshin is right, thinkpads are good computers.

Plus, I don't mind partitioning my hard drive. Then I can relive my glory days as a PC lover.

About the rebate on the iPod... you pay up front. So, I spent around $1600, and within a week Apple had sent me a check for $299.99. You have to eat the cost of the tax, but that is $24, so i couldn't have cared less after spending the huge amount on the computer itself. If you want you can apply the money toward a larger touch or nano. Actually, here, read this: http://www.macrumors.com/2008/06/03/app ... -purchase/

Just know the address of the school. I had to look it up while there to get the rebate.

I just drove past SCU. Some new taqueria just opened. Maybe it isn't a big deal to most, but I just spent the last four years in San Diego.

Can we say carne asada? (Anyone else think of the lions in the Taco Bell commercial?)

OK I got the black macbook but I raised the memory to 4gb (PARANOIA! I know...)
I also got a wireless printer for $129 but there is a $100 rebate. I did get the ipod (the 8GB) so I can sell it to buy Windows XP and Office lol.

I seriously just shelled out 2400 so I'm anxiously awaiting my 400 in rebates!!!

I logged in through Santa Clara's website then it automatically applied the discount.

So its July 1st and NO packet came to my house! Who is going to be the first to call the school....and when?

That has to be the least informative packet yet. All it says summs up in, we have nothing to show you yet, but please ask us questions. Excellant elucidation of our status...

Val, I am in. I am calling a guy today about a $1600 apartment, so hopefully that will pan out. I will let you know if they allow pets, accomodations, etc.

Such a disappointing email. Has anyone who applied for a Grad Plus Loan heard anything back yet from the school yet(along the lines of "we've certified your loan request amount." "or you made a mistake please fix it to get your loan")? Because I haven't heard anything at all.

Sigh. Doesn't anyone read Harry Potter? An auror is a dark wizard catcher...more like an elite group of people who are the brightest and the best in their class and graduated to become like a special task force patrolling the wizarding world and protecting it from evil. If anybody didn't think I was a nerd before, they do now.

... So ...

You are both dorks.

By the way, 4G of RAM? Your computer is now cleared for, and capable of, takeoff.

LOL I know its paranoid but my current computer has a serious memory issue. I may have overdone it but at least I feel secure.

I even got a pretty hardshell case for it.

I plan to use my computer as a frisbee, door stop, cutting board, plate, hood ornament, etc, etc.
Wait, how complete is the 3 year protection plan from apple?

It covers your employment of your new MacBook as a frisbee, doorstop, cutting board, plate, hood ornament, etc. etc.
