_Totally_ agree. The new MBs & MBPs are rad. I've got Leopard, Win7, & 
Ubuntu HH on mine via boot camp & parallels. The MBPs with both 
integrated & dedicated graphics cards should be really nice if Snow 
Leopard can use OpenCL to utilize the second GPU as a GPGPU. And the 
multi-touch trackpad offers quite an experience, even for simple web 

I'd also recommend checking into the educational discounts, if at all 
possible. And don't forget to check the educational memberships to ADC, 
which cost $100 but (in my case) got me a $500 discount on my laptop 
(vs. the standard $200 ed. discount).
