False.  Support for Windows XP SP2 will continue until at least April 8, 2014.  That's about 3 years after I complete my JD in 2011.  :-)

I don't believe he was talking about when they'll stop supporting XP.

Yep....My point was when the time comes that you can only get Vista, law schools will have to start supporting it.

Okay, I have been a mac person for the past 5 years or so and I have come to accept that I will have to get a PC notebook since most schools don't support macs. This is kind of a silly question but...is it okay to get a colored one? I really want a pink one but part of me is like okay...you're going to law school, do you really need a girly pink laptop?? What do other people think about this? Does everyone just get black?

I want a pink one!  It's really up to you, though.  If you would feel too uncomfortable, then stick on the side of black.  But I say go for it!  Yay pink!

only certain colors are allowed. make sure you check with the school. i'd give the admissions office a call.

Embrace your inner Elle Woods and get the pink one!

Seriously, if I get a PC, I'm totally getting a pink one (or, if possible, a yellow one, but I think I'd unfortunately have to get a Dell, which I do not want), so you won't be alone!

Are you serious? That's surprising.
Not even close to deciding:
USC - 60K
GW - nothing yet
GTown - Priority Wait List
No word from Cornell
