I was advised not to buy the 300m because your drives are not attached you will have to buy a seperate modular base. May not be necessary but you may end up carrying the weight anyway

Take this from someone who worked as a paralegal the past 3 years at the DA's and private. You will not maake the big bucks or good bucks and work 9-5. you will have more stress working for less money. The lastt post was on point with 50 being the norm for hours especially if you work in NY. I think about this all the time because I want a family but working less is not part of the greater picture if you want to make a name for yourself. I could be wrong but this is what my lawyer friends have told me better to saacrifice in the begining then to struggle when you are older.

I have a dell 600m it works great not that heavy and everything built in it is cheaper it runs smooth. I did not juice it up to much because everyone told me I wont need that much memory etc. if I dont plan to download too much it will be mostly for school I kept my desktop. I usually buy gateway but I have heard great things about dell so far i am content. definatley dont buy compaq. Good luck

Thanks you are such a great help. By the way I am going to 4th Tier more affordable closse to home and hope to transfer. You give hope to any of us that choose to go to 4th tier and make it higher.

Thank you  for the tip on wordperfect. I have liked wordperfect so far it seems to be great. I will try it. :)

lawgirl what do you think about wordperfect for notes outlining briefing etc.
it came with my laptop seems easy does it make a difference.

has anyone used wordperfect. that is what dell sent in my bundle

yeah this was the first thread that actually helped me in anyway thanks :)
