Remember I wrote about considering upgrading to a laptop a few weeks ago? I recently found out that several grad school loan companies(?) will allow you to borrow the balance between tuition and the financial aid already coming from the university—as well as money for textbooks and computers. Due to this happy news, I wandered over to Apple's website and have been looking at Macs (they also apparently have student discounts)—I hadn't really considered them before because they're much more expensive than PCs. However, the only Mac experience I really have is from using them for my biology "portfolio"/website. I think we got one class-period's worth of a Mac crash course, but it was mostly how to use Dreamweaver to set up our sites.

I know at least *some* of you have to have Macs, so I thought I'd make one of my usual Silly Polls. Any information on what type of laptop would be appreciated, too. Oh, and feel free to answer the poll even if you don’t have a laptop—some of these are Mac vs PC questions. ^_^

[Poll #1192393]

On a completely unrelated note, I'd forgotten how lovely Eden is—I mean, it's one of my favourite Sarah Brightman albums, but I'd not listened to the whole album in quite a while (which I did this morning). I suppose it's one of the downsides of always having iTunes on shuffle.

Also, I have my first high school reunion on Saturday. By "first" I mean the first reunion banquet my graduating class has been invited to—it's really our fifth reunion. No-one from my class has bothered to put up anything where people can sign up to say they're going (there isn't even a Facebook group/event, which surprised me), so I have no idea who'll be there. I only have a few friends from high school (who graduated with me) that I'm still in touch with, so if none of them are there it might be slightly awkward—I really don't like the wander-around-trying-to-find-someplace-to-sit thing. The whole concept of a fifth-year reunion sounds a bit awkward to me, actually. Hopefully things will go well, though.

And that is all.

I don't have a laptop, so I can't be of any use. I normally get by with my home computer, my office computer, and Sidney Freedman the Flash Drive to connect them both :P

The entry-level MacBook is about $1000 and probably perfectly fine for your needs.
