    Well, if you are willing to go into debt to the tune of 100,000, 200,000 or more for a four year degree, that half the time is worthless when you get out, then I guess paying an extra 30% or more for a silly laptop with a 1/2 eaten Apple logo isn't that big of a deal.

    Never mind, I'm sorry, there is no upside...:oops:

    Most of the high ranking schools charge out of state tuition of 50-70 thousand per year. Four and five year degrees don't come cheap these days.
