What do y'all find more fitting for a med school student - an iMac or an MacBook Pro? My cousin was thinking about getting an iMac for his dorm, but I told him that a laptop would definitely be more convenient. He was going to do an iMac/iPad combo, leaving him with processing power when needed, but mobility as well when he's on the go. He's basically on a limitless budget, so he's now considering the higher-end 15" MBP, for roughly $2,000 (some extras added on through Apple.com).

if he has a limitless budget tell him to get all three. I have a high end 15" MBP and it is great but can get pretty heavy at times. definitely reaching the upper limits of portability but it is extremely well powered. i would love to have an ipad + MBP combo. MBP for power and ipad for portability / e-book reader. id suggest high end MBP and ipad but that's just me. I do a lot of traveling with my MBP in the city.

Hmm... maybe an MBP and iPad? He'll be in the city too, but I figured he can still move around with the MBP (even if it is a little heavier).

Yeah you can def movie around with the MB, but the iPad would be sooo much more convenient.

My droid won't sync with my mac? I'm pretty sure I got iSync on my machine as well..

Preciate it.

If it comes down to it, it is super easy to just manually get all of your files on to your Droid. It's just a matter of finding the right folders and drag & dropping.

I would do this.. I would grab the 11" air and the 21" iMac.. With the student discount it will being it to about 2000 and he was going to drop that anyway on a high powered mbp.. This way he has can have a desk top which is easier to do work on but also have a laptop for mobility and easier to carry.. Just an opinion cause an iPad can only do some much but an air can do everything..

Wow, sounds like it has a lot of potential. The only real problem with it is that each alloy cell can only hold one bit of memory. I'm sure they'll find a way around that, and, once they do, it sounds flawless.

It'll probably topple Thunderbolt.

I also jumped on the back to school deal. Do you guys recommend keeping your music library on an external drive? Any essential apps to buy with the $100 app store credit?
Jul 06, 2011 @ 12:47
Lookin into coppin the 13" MPB early september. No need to wait on getting it anytime later or deals I should look forward to are there..

So 10.7 didn't drop today? :/
Jul 07, 2011 @ 14:45
Just copped the 15" MBP after selling my older 13" MBP for like 950 bucks. Shit looks and runs great.

I also got a free printer by buying at UNCC's apple store and using my friend's student id card swag. They didn't even bother questioning me. swag swag

It all depends how much music you have. Personally I like keeping the music locally.
Jul 09, 2011 @ 22:35
they need to kill the white macbook already or upgrade it. The most overpriced system i've ever seen, 1000 bucks for 2 gigs of RAM, Core 2 duo, and iSight. Shit is full of outdated technology.
Jul 09, 2011 @ 22:50
word^^^. It's only a matter of time before they do a refresh on these. I don't even bother showing my customers MacBook's anymore.
Jul 10, 2011 @ 01:00
Agreed. It doesn't even receive any promotion anymore.
