i'm currently thinking about buying a laptop for uni so am after something compact and light to carry around the place (possibly a 12inch screen). i have a nice desktop pc so dont need anything that'll play games etc, i would use the laptop mainly for work and possibly to hook up to my speakers to play music (so i'll need about a 40 gig hard disk minimum and a good soundcard)

i have been looking at the apple ibooks and powerbook as i can get a student discount, and also theres currently an offer if you get an ipod aswell u get 130 pounds back, however i am not convinced as they still seem quite expensive.

if anyone can give me any recomendations/advice that would be great
