    Finals week is approaching very fast and its normally quite hard to find a machine to finish your work on. Not for me. This is definitely a benefit for owning/using a mac because no matter how packed each computer lab is, the macs are always vacant. Ahhh, an entire section of the computer lab just for me!

    What benefits have you found besides the usual?

    Werd. That's what I've found. No switching between windows all the time, I just spread everything out. Going from a 15" to 20" 16:10 has been a wet dream :bowdown:

    Yes, 1680x1050 FTW!

    I use the 21" Gateway lcd for that, it's quite nice.

    If Apple would stop coming out with new stuff that "I can't live without" that would be true for me.
