Just a regular MacBook. I'm picking up a MBP sometime in the near future, I'll be sure to take pictures.

I know you didn't want hp or compaq, but i've had mine for 6 months.

I can run BF2 on low settings, and NFSMW on medium-low settings, and the battery life is good and it has built in wifi and everything.

I got it at walmart for $377 (with 256 megs or ram) then replaced the 256 with 512 x 2 (for $80) so I have a decent laptop with a gig ram for around $450

What'd you end up getting Sideburns?

I just bought a new notebook from newegg.

It's an Averatec and i was going for ultraportability this time around. I went the route that Remonster did and got a DTR the first time. Now I'll be going lightweight. 10.6" display 3.6 pounds.

I'm pretty set on the T60. Just gotta wait for the damn parents to wake the eff up. Ya know? They're in no hurry. I'll be paying for most of it...but still.

Just gotta wait for them to get motivated. They don't see the need for any rush.

It's all good though....eventually....

So much for the discount, it is not working anymore. I was looking at getting a thinkpad and was finally going to buy it.
