Re: [PhillyOnRails] MacBook Choices

Yeah I think I'll definitely be making a stop at the Apple Store to check it out.  Thanks for the thoughts!

I got a Dell with a 17" screen because I wanted a desktop computer
replacement, and it's great to work and watch movies on. You
definitely find yourself considering and reconsidering whether you
*really* need your computer when you go places, though. As a student,
it's annoying because the only bag it fits in is its big, leather
laptop bag.
