Pennsylvania / Re: Penn 2006 admitted students discussion
« on: January 05, 2006, 10:45:33 AM »
One great thing about Penn - I was poking around craigslist last night, just to see what sort of stuff was out there in terms of housing and I was BLOWN AWAY by the prices!! Maybe I am just used to Boston's real estate prices, but the places I found on craigslist were unbelievably cheap. i mean there was some stuff available for less than $300 a month, and it didn't look ready to be condemned or anything. for $500 you can really live it up.  (with a roommate, of course).  if you want to live alone, you can get a decent place for the price i'm paying to live with 3 people in Boston. I'm psyched.

In other news, am i an idiot? I cant find this seating chart mechanism thing on my goat portal thingie. Prof Wax seems to think this is very imp... ?

you can't do it until tomorrow

I'm in Civ Pro - 004 with Wax. anyone else?

oooo I'm in section 2  :)

now, i wonder what the deal is with Civ Pro and why it's not on our schedules yet

edit: for a second there, i was all excited about not having any class until 10:30am, but then i realized that CIV PRO will go there  :(

Did you think about getting the 2.0 GHz processor Macbook rather than the 1.83 GHz? Or any increased memory (e.g., seems like Penn's recommendation is more like 1GB RAM)?

fwiw, I got the 2.0 GHz version, with 1GB of RAM and 80Gs of hard drive space.  But I'm a bit upgrade-crazy.  I did the same sort of upgrades with my current iBook and I'm fairly certain they haven't been making a difference (I've only used up about half of the hard drive space so far.)  I guess I like the sort of "security blanket" feeling it gives me.

It says to make sure:
your other mac has built-in firewire and supports firewire target disk mode
your other mac has osX v10.1 or later
you have a standard 6-pin to 6-pin firewire cable

That makes only a limited amount of sense to me; I assume its a Mac thing.   :D

it only makes limited sense to me, too  ;)  the only thing i'm not sure about is that 6pin firewire cable. i wonder if i have to buy that separately?

Did you already go through the setup assistant?  The user guide says that there's a "Migration Assistant" to help do that if you already blew through the setup.

Mine just came this morning.  I'm trying to get to know it a little.

oh, awesome.  my macbook came but it's at my parents' house so i wont see it until this weekend.  i had no idea there would be a program built in. sounds great!  do i need any special cables or something? or is everything i need in the box?

Does anyone here know how I can transfer my files (like music and photos) from my old iBook to my new MacBook?

someone who starts at 163 (cold) probably wouldn't have to work their ass off to get a 170. js

yeah the main thing throwing me off is these laptops that I keep seeing on sale for like $600-$900, and I keep thinking to myself, "do I really need the MacBook if I can have a laptop with very similar specs for about $500-$800 cheaper?"

any thoughts?  ???

what laptops have you seen for $500-$800 cheaper than a MacBook with truly comparable specs? That would mean getting a computer for about $300-$600, maybe $800 if you we're talking about a MacBook with added options.  I can't imagine getting a quality PC for those prices.
