    MacBook Air for me. It's a "real" compu-tater and the solid state hard drive makes it even faster than the MBP, with a spinning HD. The weight in your packback will be a 5 lb bag of sugar, versus a 2.5 lb envelope of rice cakes, and it will be very noticeable.

    Save money by getting external storage, or even an external optical disc drive and you're golden eggs will be ripe with treasure.

    Lecture hall = small/tiny armrest/desk surface. Smaller is better. It's small, but it packs a wallop. It's aluminum. aluminium.
