i've been wondering about skins lately.. do they look tacky in real life? and if not, where are some good sites to find some good ones?

I used a vinyl sticker but instead of sticking it to the Macbook itself I bought a transparent clear case like this and then directly applied the sticker to the clear case. That way, there's no direct contact with the laptop, no sticky residue and you can change the skin according to your moods.

I just got an email about that ^.

Get a free iPod touch when you buy a Mac for college when you buy a qualifying Mac.

Buy a Mac before Sept. 15 and get a free Ipod Touch 8g or a free Ipod Nano your choice. (Uh, I would definitely choose the Touch, that's like a no brainer).

Macbooks are save $100, MBA are save $230 and MBPs are save $200. iMac is save $140.

You can see all the prices for education discounts if you go to the Apple Store website, and click on "Education Store" on the lefthand side.

My MBP lasts for about 8-10 hours after a full charge with average use (surfing the web, checking email, word programs, itunes, etc).

WOW! 8-10 hours is amazing! Is that continous use? My MB usually lasts about... 4 hours maybe, my fiancé's macbook pro lasts about 6 with moderate use, but even 4 is really good for a laptop. Most PC laptops usually lasts 1 to 2

so go buy yourself a mac

Sorry guys! No no, not with continuous use. Sorry to get your hopes up! Its like 5 hours? I think.

I never run any intensive applications and I end up closing it and leaving unplugged and I use the power saver options all the time and turn the brightness on the screen way down.

So real time is like 5-6 hours.

And the bigger the screen the less battery life. I think the 17 inch has the least battery life of the MBPs.

I got confused with my iPod Touch! Haha, wouldn't it be wonderful to have a battery that lasted that long though?

My old Thinkpad used to do like 2 or 3 hours. 4 years later I hadn't got a new battery and it was doing 15 minutes, lol.

^ Same. It used to last more when I first got it, I think. And I do the same with brightness and amount of programs open.

^It's brand new. I have noticed it not lasting as long as time goes on, but not anything major. It all depends on what I do with it how I use it that day.

how old is it? You should try and download iStat or one of the battery-monitoring programs and try recallibrating your battery maybe.
