OMG: Should I get a macbook pro? Since they have a student discount my parents told me I should. But at the same time Im kinda questioning myself if it's really worth the bucks. I'm currently using a windows laptop but it easily warms up and has a pretty bad battery life. Everything else I can handle it tho.
I'm in chemical engineering btw.

  1. As a chem eng student myself, I wouldn't recommend it. In your upper years you will need access to software (like ControlStation) that won't work on a mac. Also IIRC, the student discount is like $50. Just buy a better windows laptop and save the money.

  3. I bought a macbook pro when starting my undergrad (graduated now). It still works well for general computing, but I built a desktop partway through to run windows software that I needed. If I did it again I would build a desktop and buy a surface pro or something similar.

  4. Check out the "Microsoft Education Store" and Dell. They have some pretty great discounts at the moment.

  5. Holy motherfucking shit. Who the fuck buys these things? 3K for a fucking item that will be obsolete in six months? You going to impress all the rich asians with this or what? Get your pecker waxed for three thousand? Shit. Go to a Kitchener rub n' tug for under a hundred, or go to Phil's and pay for two drinks to some random university slut. She be on your dick in one of those doorless stalls before midnight. Fuck. Go buy a $2 coles notebook, splurg $5 on gel pens, sit down, shut the fuck up, and write notes. Use the other money you'd have used to invest. Then after you graduate get the fancy shit and get your dick sucked by vapid broads. That's how to do it.
