Here's the link for the UVA package FWIW: http://www.uvastudentcomputers.com/shop_law.asp
Oh man do I have opinions... were you thinking mac or pc? Both of those options are overpriced for what they are. For Mac I would look at the newer macbook airs that were just released. And for pc I would look at the dell xps 13. If you had a specific budget in mind I can probably provide a recommendation. Personally I don't think you need a 3 year accident warranty, but I'm not very clumsy with my laptop either.
Also, for anyone buying a new comp, keep in mind that uva lets you download Microsoft Office for free, so don't pay extra for it: http://its.virginia.edu/software/displa ... php?tId=27
Probably PC. What retailers carry the best deals in your opinion?
