Hey guys, im lookin for recommendations for any laptops i should look into when i go into university next year. I've been thinking of the iBook, but im not sure if my courses in the future (im taking Business Administartion at Simon Fraser University) will need any applications that will require Windows OS's, and its relatively expensive compared to Windows notebooks with similar features. My priorities are: - Portability! I dont mind a 12" screen if it means greater portability. I felt the 12" iBook was a PERFECT size. - Price! Though my parents are paying for it, i dont wanna gouge them out for any more than I have to. - Reliability/Value. Pretty self-explanatory. I dont want something that'll have loose flaps that'll break off and stuff. - Features. I wanna be able to have all the basic ports/peripheral expansions and whatnot. A CD Burner would be nice, but i doubt many notebooks come with it. DVD-Rom might be a nice feature. I won't use it to game (actually, i think it'd be better if it wasn't possible to game, then i wont be playing all the time :p) ) Mainly Websurfing, MSN/ICQ, MP3/Music, Word Processing, just the basics. I wanna keep it under $2000.00 CAD Thanks!
