I'm coming in May and am thinking about laptops. I have a powerbookg4 that i'm bringing but two things: I don't want to lug it around and the battery life is..... well not so good.
So i am thinking about adding a netbook that I won't have to worry about and can take to class to take notes on. There are some with full keyboards and decent screens with 6 hour battery life. These only run at ca $400.
My main question is this: What do you actually use your laptop for (school wise). Will I be sitting staring at the screen all day. I ask this because everyone is always talking about the notes and power points etc.
So, is a netbook a bad idea as a secondary comp, or should I stop whining and spend 1300 on a new macbook?
