I second that. I was looking at my friend's laptop in class the other day. The bottom plastic on the base is a different color than the top part and I asked him, "Why do you have it hooked up to a dock?" He said, what dock? The laptop is as thick as a brick.
Getting my first mac tomorrow. PB 17" (I'll be the only one in my class with a mac ;-(
I'll third this hehe. I see lots of people with laptops on campus these days (I'm a business undergrad), and two things tend to stick out. First, they almost always have their laptops plugged into a power outlet while sitting in class (hmmm, crappy battery life?). Second, some of those PC laptops are behemoths, definately pushing the definition of portability.
I've wanted a laptop for some time now, when I do get one, it's going to be a Mac, only question is iBook vs. Powerbook.
