Boo... My Laptop's Dying :(
The hard drive is making aweful grinding noises and thus, it's not healthy :(

I'm now shopping for a MacBook pro and thankfully, the bookstore at my old school doesn't update student status via PeopleSoft :P

I could have used my sister's credentials too, but I'll go ahead with mine for now :)

It's going to set me back $3000, but yea for signing up for a Discover card a couple of months ago with an introductory 1-year 0% APR!

I spent a little more than that last year for my Contiki European trip. Guess no Contiki Mykanos for me this summer... lol well, we'll see... heh

suggest you back up and stick it out another month or so if at all possible--Core2Duo's are on the horizon for the entire MB line before xmas, according to the reliable rumor mills. also, the longer you wait, the better your chances you'll get a free or cheapened upgrade to Leopard when it releases (my money's on Macworld in early January, but hard to tell).

You're the fisrt of two to suggest that. :)

It was more of an impulse buy for me because I needed something real quick, but I've come up with a contigency plan...

I cancelled my order and now I'm just going either get a laptop HD from my coworker to fix my old one or borrow his powerbook for the interim period.

as an other option, I still have my old G4 1.25 15". 80G, superdrive, 802.11g/bluetooth. About 3 years old, but a good contingency computer if you want something cheap for a while--all it's doing is gathering dust here. Make me an offer, it can ship anytime! :)

btw, the G4's name is Bruno. named after a HOTT (albeit very Republican) douchey saxophone player. if that makes any difference!!

I need to see a pic of this said "HOTT (albeit very Republican) douchey saxophone player" :P

heheh

I don't have the need to have two fully working laptops by the end of the year, but thanks for the offer!
