Dear God, whatever you do, do not buy a Nokia phone! How much of an outdated piece of shit are you looking to buy? I can sell you a Palm Treo if you're in the market for one?

Wait until after CES to make all phone related decisions.

Should I: MacBook air 11"

Yes: Friend works at Apple, I get 25% off, putting it at $800-900 depending on options.

No: Work gives me a computer. I have no need for the Air, I just want it.

I must second this. Don't waste your money on a laptop with an 11" screen, subpar specs, and no cd drive. It looks good, but is not functional for what you need to do for your job.

N8's hardware is decent the camera is amazing, but the OS Sucks! I would not buy it, look at the reviews on youtube, the software is outdated, I wouldn't buy one if I were you.

If you need the phone to actually make calls, get something other than iPhone 4. It's great at everything else though.

Have had the nokia for a few days. No major problems with it. Seem to get some issues with the FM transmitter and mp3's but haven't sat down and figured out if I'm doing something wrong. I'm sure I'd hate the software if coming from an Iphone or Android but I'm not so it's been painless for me. Haven't had the chance to put the camera through its paces but will do so eventually.

ive had my 13" Pro for months and i cant ever remember using the optical drive...

so the 11" Air would be awesome

if you dont want to buy it, sell it to me at that discount cost

Dining Chairs for a Dining Table I have yet to buy. Though my place is small I'm considering getting a set of four: three around a smallish table and one up against the wall. Will come in handy in the event I have company.

From Blue Dot for $150 each

Ebony


Ivory


Technical White Oak


From Allmodern.com for $120/ea (minimum purchase of 4). Apparantly these are worth $650 each.





I think I actually prefer the last chair but hate being forced to purchase a set of 4
