I would get a MacBook immediately (I'm going through a very similar decision with college laptop
, but I won't bring my desktop for gaming).
You get free ipod, free printer, free shipping. (What more do you _want_!??) You don't get Leopard, but it will only cost $70 whenever you want it (education discount). Do you consider getting comfortable before some fairly tumultuous months? I do...
It'd be nice to have some buffer time to sort out problems (dud battery or whatever bad luck pulls on you)...printer discount expires Saturday!
