I was going to get a Acer Ferrari for Uni 2006, but then thought it would be best to wait, its pointless having a laptop for a year, everything can change quite a bit in a year. Its tempting to go and buy it straight away when you have the money, but you end up kicking yourself when something else better comes out.
No matter what/when you buy your notebook, something else better will come out shortly after. It's just the nature of the computer market.
To me, waiting is a waist of time, so I'm thinking of going cheap and update to a new system often! So the MS-1029 seams to be a good choice. But I'm not sure if I can wait that long
