QTIP: If you've been dreaming about macs for a while, don't let law school stop you. I have an ibook myself and definitely plan on using it thru law school and beyond. You will not have any problems with wifi and software compatibility (be sure to get the student edition of MS Office for mac, which is a steal). Like the others said, the only issue will be the exam software. You can easily borrow a friend's PC laptop or maybe even buy a cheap used one just for that purpose. As for law offices being PC-centric, that is true but I've never had a problem accessing a PC network via my mac. Besides, macs are slowly gaining a following among lawyers, as evidenced by this webiste www.macattorney.com. I used to be a hardcore PC user but NO MORE!
