I heard Minnesota's required laptop loan program switched to Dells from Thinkpads for next year. Tough break.

Duke UG seemed to push Dells, too.  I don't like them at all!

penn has a lot of macbook pros. lots of thinkpads too. some dells. pretty sure its not the only school where students have dells though. i'd venture to guess that with 100 more students in the entering class, there are more dells at michigan.

just got my MBP yesterday, with 200$ off a 80 gig ipod. loving it. had a 15" powerbook for last 4 years.

jolie-- can you get all of those omni programs in a bundle or do you have to buy them separately? i was planning on upgrading from omnioutliner to the pro version. and considering omnigraffle. in omnioutliner-- can you import outlines from people who use word?

Any thoughts on Matte vs. Glossy for the MBP?

I just had a terrible Mac experience within the last few days.  I have had 4 new macbooks since July 1, and I finally had to just return it.  The comps kept on having these "kernal panics," which is just a nicer term for what we know as a crash, i think.   A screen that said "you must restart your computer now" would show up out of nowhere and I would have to restart.  They were also sure it had nothing to do with what I had put on the computers.  The sad thing is that I loved the macbook.  I'm still thinking that, after a bit of research that shows what happened to me was a fluke, I may go back and purchase another one.  Has anyone here had any issues with these crashes?

I've only gotten them if I decided to shut the case before it has finished the shutdown process. It gets that kernel panic and then heats up to the point where it could probably start a fire if left too long.
