my question is - how much hard drive space are you planning to designate for the windows partition?

I just bought a 120G backup harddrive for my G4 desktop so my stuff will be safe before moving and to make it easier to move files between computers.  I am officially all backed up!

Goodgal, do you know how we get our Apple discount through Penn?  If not, I can just go through my work...

You can just go to the apple website and click on the education link (i think) and then you choose Penn from a list of colleges. then (if i'm remembering correctly) you have to type in your pennkey, and from there you'll be able to order what you want from the apple website with the Penn discount.

And I'm impressed that you filled your 20G ipod!  I haven't even maxed out my 4G mini yet!  :D  so i think I'll be fine with 30Gs. 

AZ - how do you use an iPod for backup?

Did you buy your Macbook yet?  Now that we have official approval, I think I'm going ahead with the Macbook... maybe I will order it tonight!

I haven't yet, but I'm going to any day now. Not really sure what I'm waiting for.  The only thing that might make me wait is that I'm not sure if I want all that stuff (laptop, backup hard drive, new iPod, printer, etc) being shipped to my current apartment right before I move. So i might wait a few weeks and have it shipped to my parents house, where I will be for part of August.

What's your plan for the free iPod? are you going with the totally free nano, or upgrading?  I think I'm going to get the 30G video version for $90. what a deal  :)

I need to be on this thread.

So do MacBooks have a shorter battery life than the old iBooks?  2.5 hours sounds a bit skimpy.  I currently take my iBooks on bus trips from Boston to NYC (and back) and generally have the thing running the whole time (playing movies, iTunes videos, etc). 

well, i dont think they actually have an "apple store," it's more like one big computer store that happens to sell Apple. (i'm really not sure entirely how it works) Anyway I'm pretty sure they support undergrad computers, so I can't see why they wouldn't help out a couple of law students  :)

and if all else fails, the you can usually find a solution on the internet

Thanks everyone...I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible.

Goodgal, since we are going to school together I may have to come to you with all of my Mac crises (which I'm hoping are none of course)! Just nervous because IT has been scaring me.

ha  :)

well i'm no computer expert, but I hear there is an Apple store (or something) on campus that can handle our problems.  it's not associated with the law school, just Penn in general.

I'm going with MacBook and I'm neither a redhead nor a weirdo (well, not in my opinion anyway   ;))

I think I'll do the 2Ghz white MacBook with 80GB hard drive and 1G ram.

I would guess Boston.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Penn v. UVA

Can I just suggest that SCOTUS placement stats are pretty much a moot point for most Penn/UVA students anyway?  If this is your main goal in life you had better pray for a Yale admit (or similar).

For the majority of Penn/UVA type students who are just looking for a kick-ass firm job after graduation, both schools will get you where you want to be.
