    So I'm about to go off to college here in about a month, and I need a new laptop for note taking and work what nots.

    What I'm wondering are what the benefits would be of purchasing a Macbook Pro and how much this will cost me?

    the cheapest mac book pro, the 13", is 1199.99 and it is much better than windows or linux in many ways. It has much more power, its the more advanced alternative, very good with 'i' devices. And most importantly, the majority of the population uses windows so most viruses are targeted for the windows operating system, not macs

    I doubt they will allow that. The 'Buy a Mac and get a free iPod Touch' is a back to school promotion, and the new iPod Touch comes out in late September, so the promotion will probably be over.

    Do you know if the touches will be third generation?

    My current jailbroken i-device is a first gen with a giant pressure point in the upper left hand corner? Needless to say I need a upgrade.

    Will it be on 3.1.3? Or maybe 4.0 since it's about to be released?

    Yes, it'll be an 8gb 3rd gen, or you can an extra $100 for 32gb 3rd gen or $200 for 64gb 3rd gen. Or you can get a Shuffle, Nano or an extra $60 for a Classic.

    If you get it after the 21st it will be on 4.0. iOS 4 is free anyways.
