Don't buy a Mac, they're all 'hip' on campus, but I honestly think around half of all mac users merely got them for the brand. Biggest issue is that any work you do on your laptop will simply not be compatible with any Microsoft products installed on university computers, and they'll ALL be using windows. For example, word processing, you'd have to do it entirely on your laptop or entirely on library PCs, unless you use some Adobe product.. Plus gaming is still far more restrictive on Macs than on PCs, not as bad as it was, but still a ballache when you find out something's offlimits

Thanks for all the brill advice guys =P I do love my desktop but it's the portability problem.
Went into PC world and looked at Macbook Pro's....extremely expensive but the guy said 'you won't buy another laptop if you get one of these' and raved about them.
£1000 for a tiny 13" screen and the apple logo. Is it worth it?
Should I take my desktop to begin with and then eventually buy the laptop?
As for laptop specs can you recommend the best for
Value for money is awful, for £850 I got a top-of-the-range laptop with a 17'' screen, Macs probably don't even dip into triple digits...
