    Think they are aboyt to release a new batch, which mean prices will fall on these models. You shuld also ensure you get student discount or the free 1 years extra guarantee from J lewis. Go and have a look at them in J lewis to work out whats the best size and weight for you. Id probably get a 13" mac pro.

    There are plenty of mac comparison reviews. the best single reviews I like are on mobile tech review where she really does give an indepth expert assessment..

    How do you get the student discount? Would I have to purchase the nus card?
    And thank you!
    And do you know when they will release the new batch?

    No idea, probably not or it will be much reduced look at the site.

    Plenty of people will come along to point out the differences and what they like. I think if you see an 11" ine next to a 12" or 13" or 15" one you will know what best suits you.

    JL will give you a years extra guarantee which is worth £50-80 so compare the prices.. there are plenty of threads on macs if you use the search button. not everyone needs one, but some just prefer the interface and are willing to spend extra for it. Just keep reading reviews and checking them in real life till you are comfy.
