For one, OS X is a lot easier to install ;)

But the fact that os x has a unix kernel should not be ignored.  It's added a lot of stability and power.

Lived and worked abroad for a year, making a living doing something you enjoyed.. this is an asset.

There is nothing wrong with taking a year off to do something you enjoy (being a ski bum, playing video games), you deserve it (worked hard for that near 4.0 in EE).  At least you made some $$$ while doing it.

I think, generally speaking, if you don't already know why the powerbook is better, then you won't really benefit much from the benefits of having one.

Here are some links where the difference between ibook and powerbook are discussed:

Some of them are a bit dated, but they should provide you with a lot of info

I think it's something unique that really makes you stand out as an individual, and you should definately list it when your apps ask for your employment history.

It sounds like you're going to have a hard time pinning down exactly what to write about in your PS, good luck!

N.B. Do not get an ibook (although powerbooks are better) before checking with your law schools.  Some law schools won't allow you to use them for exams.


You can't really compare processor speeds out of context.  Lower speed g4 processors routinely out-perform higher-speed pentium processors on various tasks.. apple has those stats somewhere on its site.

Edit: Here are the ways lower-speed apple processors out-perform higher-speed intel processors: http://www.apple.com/powermac/performance/

So just make sure you don't say to yourself "oh, but the dell is 3.5GHz, it must be better"

That's also true.  The median GPA at the average T4 (or even T3, and a lot of T2s) is much lowerthan the median GPA at the average top school.  For example, the lowest grade you can get at upenn is a B-, while many lower ranked schools are required to give Ds and Fs.

This should be balanced out by class rank, but I think there is a psychological effect that the lower numbers have upon employers.  I don't know why the lower schools sabatoge their own students this way.

It's probably all the same work, but since everyone is graded on the curve, and only the top graduates at the worse schools will get decent jobs, there is a ton of competition, and so it's harder to get good grades.  On the other hand, at Harvard, even if you finish dead last in your class, you're still going to be able to get a good job (assuming you graduate).

The worse the school, the more time students tend to spend studying, so T4s are probably the hardest.
