Thanks so much for your post, that is really helpful information and very comforting!  I feel much better going into this after heading from someone that actually has some experience with the properties!

Incoming 1Ls / Anyone from Atlanta familiar with the Post Properties?
« on: March 21, 2006, 02:41:50 PM »
Sorry for the random post, but I thought someone might be able to help...  I'm living in Atlanta for the summer and I've narrowed the apartment hunt down to Post Lindbergh or Post Collier Hills.  I'm not from there and will not be able to make it down to check out the apartments before signing a lease.  Is anyone familiar with either of these properties?  If so, any advice would be so much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

where do you find e-briefs?  is it something online?  can't seem to find it in google...

Your sibling only gets married once.  I wouldn't miss my sister's wedding for anything, but we're very close.  I think you could get notes, or even ask a classmate to record the lecture.  As for the info fair, i wouldn't worry about it.  Yeah, being tired for the first day of class sucks, but coffee should help that.  Every school is different, but I wouldn't think twice about missing the last day.  It is a good idea to call the school though....

From what I've ready, they don't seem to be a lot different.  It seems that latitudes have a stronger/more stable platform.  They are the business line.  I guess everything (all of the components and the computer) are tested thuroughly, while the inspirons are not.  Inspirons are not standard, they do not always have the same manufactor for the parts inside.  Latitudes will always be standard. 

Duke will only service latitudes, not inspirons.  As many law schools are recommending latitudes over inspirons, I'm going to go with a latitude.  What's an extra few hundred when looking at the total law school expenses....

well, at one point there was a $400 off coupons for latitudes.  it has since disappeared.  very frustrating.  yesterday, the dell site was giving $500 off the latitiudes.  I was all ready to purchase, then decided to wait until today, now it's only $270 off.  i'm going to check every day for the next week for something better, if nothing comes, I'm just going to order.  for the last month it's been $270 off, so hopefully that's not going anywhere...

i tried to order a latitude but they said i cant unless my school has a deal with them or unless my business orders one..

how did you guys get it?

did you try to order online?  i haven't gone through with my order, but i've gotten all the way to the purchase page with no problems... i would try just telling them you're a law student.  duke recommends the latitude d610 above the others, i would assume your school would recommend it as well

It's a piece of darn although it says inspiron on the label.

Wow, sorry to hear that.  How old is it?  I've always had dells, and have been very happy with them.  I have an Inspiron 8200, a few years old and still is great.  Mine gets a little warm on the bottom, but definitely not hot (it actually feels nice during the winter!).  I've definitely heard of some bad dell experiences though.

Yeah, you won't need the 2gh unless you plan on playing some kick@ss games during class.

Also, something to consider, make sure it has proper fans/heatsinks. My Dell (600m) heats up like nobody's business. If i have it on my lap, i pretty much fry my sperm after 30-45 minutes of typing. And because it heats up so much, i'm constantly saving my work because i'm paranoid it'll crash. Just a thought...

Is the 600m an inspiron or latitude?  I'm thinking it's an inspiron??  Apparently the latitudes go through quite a bit more testing than the inspirons (at least from what I've read), so hopefully it won't be a problem....

Thanks so much for these explanations!!  So, it looks like I should be getting an SXGA+ screen, 2 dimm (because I'll never need to upgrade), and the 1.86 processor:)  That does save some money.  Thanks again!
