Should I? i figure that if i started saving now,

200ish / month * 6 = 1200$

thats if i do some freelance computer work, and dont use any of the work money. that could get me close enough to the 12inch ibook with dvd/cd-rw.

nothing wrong with the ibook persay, just realize that you may have interoperability problems.

ibook + os x = uber-sex

if you've got the funds (or are willing to save up for it) - go for it. just dont forget to factor in ALL The costs of buying it to make sure you can afford it (tax, more software, etc) - sorry if I sound like a parent - it's my econ class talking -_-

I personally like the ibooks. I'm also a longtime fan of apple, so I'm sorta biased. :)

But if you think you want it go for it.

Sure go for it. I got a 12.1" combo model about a year ago and it's worked great.

I saw a story on “the register” UK a while ago (which I put on my links page), that if you are in education you can lease Apple ibooks/powerbooks and then buy them very cheaply at the end of the lease period.

Might be worth investigating if they are also offering that in the US.
