    We are about to go and get this computer. Well ~ not me, but my daughter. She came home from college yesterday and said this is what she is going to get.

    Everyone has them at college and they are awesome for note taking, and you can also tape the instructor on what he is saying? Something like that.

    So ~ I was looking at them at the Apple site and the 13" is almost $1200 and the 17" is almost $2500!

    Goodness ~

    Does the Apple store provide financing? I am about to go and check on that!

    Thoughts? Good choice? She has about 4 years left including graduate school...

    It's an investment. I bought my wife a new MacBook Pro last month and installed Win7 for those programs where they don't have OSX support.

    I believe that they do. They are awesome, but I am biased as I am an apple fanboy.

    Your daughter should be the one buying it, not you, because Apple offers dicounts for college students. You have to access the website from a college internet though, as the option doesn't appear otherwise. Apple smartness again :)

    There is a 6 or 12 month financing option, but you have without doubt found that already ;)

    Just pretend you want to buy a Macbook, after choosing the screensize, it asks you to configure the MBP and on the right sight is a box labeled Summary. Inside that box is a blue link: 6 or 12 month financing options.

    There may be different financing options available though. You might want to head to your local AppleStore to find out about them :D
