Just like every other college hopeful, I'm looking into getting a new laptop. Now I'm fairly sure I want to go the Apple route, but if you can recommend a great Windows laptop, I'll definitely look into it.
Right now, there are some main specifics I'm looking for in a laptop:
-long battery life
-basic programs: word, excel, powerpoint, paint, etc.
One of my main concerns with the Air is the lack of a "CD/DVD compartment" (not sure what it's called). I don't normally use CDs or DVDs, but the big question is "What if?"
Do those of you already in college use CDs/DVDs often?
