    Would an external usb optical drive work? If so, you could go with something much lighter.

    I might haul her down to Best Buy to show her the one Preditan recommended. I don't think she'd go for an external usb.

    If she is only using it to install software or watch movies in the dorm, she can save her shoulder some backpack weight.

    Just a thought. Good luck and feel free to give me a call if you need some help.

    That might be a good idea. I'll ask her what her plans are for the drive and let you know.

    +1 for Vaio.

    Had mine for 2+ years now and never had an issue. Runs like a dream.

    After more conversations, I think she'd rather go with one without an optical drive and is willing to go down to 13 or 14" to lighten the load.

    Try looking on Craigslist for a mac... one of my classmate bought one in bad shape for 300 and sent it in to apple for and got it all cleaned up for about 250... looks like its been refurbished .. and it only cost him less than half of what he would've gotten for a new one

    Another +1 for Vaio. I've had mine for over three years and it's just started slowing down a tad in the last week or so. It got me through three years of undergrad(had a Toshiba my first year). I have a 17 inch though, so I don't know how the smaller ones handle.
