    I got mine for approx £2300 recently after saving up for a loooooong time (17 inch pro- I configured it to have iWork pre-installed before ordering + chose 2.8GHz as well as apple care). I spent all that money and I'm not disappointed. I really like iWork - it is much better than Mac Office. Go for it!

    EDIT: I'm a college student

    I use iwork and have loved it - it takes getting used to, but so does the mac combared to any windows laptop anyway! Personally, I would wait until June until you do get your Macbook Pro, as then you can get all the student treats, you'll no doubt be offered the new ipod touch and if an update does come out, it will be before then! Macrumours suggests waiting as there is usually an update between March and June yearly
