UVA class of 2011 computers?

It appears that the bundles are the only sure insurance if a computer crashes before exams, but I have always hated buying preset bundles and I've heard that the schools receive a rather nice cut from such bundles.

I think the bundles are a good idea, because if you have any problems during your three years they just give you another one.

I'm doing both. I'm going to buy a bundle, but I also already own a computer. That way if something does happen, I'll have a backup.

And if I were you i'd just post these questions in the regular uva forum. more likely to get responses that way.

Could anyone at UVA that got a mac bundle let me know what the computer specifications/model number was and what software it included? I'm trying to decide whether to buy a laptop now or wait for the student macbook bundles to become available in May.
