ITT: Computers
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:18:24 PM »
Okay, so I haven't seen a thread on here lately about computers in law schools.

I just found out that my current computer will probably not make it for six more months, and I'm going to need something more portable anyway. I'm thinking about the dell mini 9 http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4578, paired with a mac mini at home.

What are the rest of you doing?

I'd love to join this LGBT club.  It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right?  I'll show up with an armful of toys.

I'll probably conform and get a regular laptop although I am super tempted to get a Macbook.

voted.  I'm buying a new Mac...I've had this one for a few years, it's getting a bit slow :)

I loved my macbook, but I find the cheap (disposable?) price of the netbook plus the size and weight (I want to shave as many pounds off those tomes as possible) too tempting to pass up. Plus it'll let me save some money so I can buy an awsomely large screen for movies/hulu.

Guess I'm the only one who isn't a fan of Macs  :-\  It just seems like everything is backwards on them.  My bf vehemently disagrees and regularly tells me my resistance to them is irrational.

They knock the irrational right out of you in LS, right? So by the end everyone's an apple fanboy?

Lenovo ThinkPad with Windows XP Pro.

Scarily, I was just looking at the Lenovo website to pick out my computer and also trying to figure out how to get XP in place of Vista.
