Lots of students are. Everyone at my office just got iPads for meetings.
UC Berkeley is not the place to judge norms.
That being said, buy your hardware for the reason YOU NEED it, not the reason everyone else decides to buy their things. If you want a laptop, get a laptop. Most of the students that get Mac products just get them because they have no idea what they are buying and Macbooks are admittedly cool computers and are perfectly suited for "note taking" kinds of users.
I got a Macbook Pro for school in 2006/2007, and doing it over, I would have gotten a PC just because of the expense, and how little I use it now. Although, it is a *very* nice laptop.Edited by _02 - 7/21/11 at 12:45pm
