Students normally save around 10% or so all year on Macs, but they throw in a free iPod during the summer (usually June-August). And they did just update the MacBook Pros.

But I'd still save some of that money.


They also throw in a printer (or $100 towards one) on occasion. That's basically the best you'll get with Apple.

I saw you spend your three years in law school having fun with loan-financed caribbean vacations before slaving away in the public defenders office for 10 years. worst plan ever.


This is a bizarre post... Which part of your suggestion is the "worst plan ever." Most of it seems like a great plan for someone interested in PI/PS...

TITCR...although a gaming PC might cost a bit more than 800...


nah, just built mine for around that much and it can play pretty much any game available on highest settings

economy just made tech stuff a LOT cheaper lol
