Buying a laptop for school requires us to take into consideration a few simple facts. They are:
- Your laptop will be with you for two to four years.
- You will tote your laptop around like one of Paris Hilton’s hairless dogs.
- Your laptop will get beaten up a bit more than those selfsame dogs.
With these things in mind, we now have to find a laptop that is low-priced yet high in quality. This rules out a number of very cheap models and every expensive, bulky models. In short, students need a laptop that will still look good after two years and will still work after six months. A tall order indeed.
But never fear: I’ve been looking at laptops for almost a decade now and there are a few I’ve seen that particularly catch my eye. These are laptops I’d buy my own kids. Low
ASUS Eee PC 1215N – about $500 – This, the latest in the ASUS Eee line, has Optimus graphics and a high-powered Atom processor. This 3.2-pound notebook is thin enough to slip into a backpack but lacks an optical drive – a minor concern for some students. Yes, it’s a netbook, but ASUS built their recently fortune on netbooks so I’m willing to give this a pass. It’s definitely not for games or video editing, but it will work just fine as a text editing, web surfing, IMing machine. It also has HD video playback on the 12.1-inch screen. [Product Page]
Samsung N150 – About $350 – If you’re a literature major eating Ramen or you want a little notebook to use in class, the N150 is a safe bet. The 10.5-inch laptop runs Windows 7 Starter (you’re probably going to want to upgrade) and it will run most office applications without any problems. Just don’t plan on doing any high-resolution image editing and you’ll be fine. [Product Page]
Middle Dell XPS 16 – $949 – If there’s a laptop line suited for students it’s the Dell’s Studio brand. These small laptops are designed for a few simple purposes – multimedia, video, etc. – but the XPS 16 is the only one designed for (ssssshhhhh) gaming. The 15.6-inch screen displays full HD graphics powered by an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 565v graphics chip. Whether you’re going to be dropping heavy duty science in Chemistry class or dropping rockets in Modern Warfare, this is the laptop for you. [Product Page]
MacBook – $999 – Call us fanbois all you want but a MacBook is the perfect laptop for most students. Thanks to lots of battery life, plenty of power, and compatibility with almost anything you can throw at it, a standard MacBook is fast becoming the de facto notebook on many campuses. While Windows 7 is a great OS, I suspect the average computer user will have very little trouble switching and as long as you maintain regular back ups there is little that you can do to this thing that will fold, mutilate, or spindle your data.

Alienware M11x – $1150 – A few years ago, Alienware laptops were so expensive – and so large – that it was ludicrous to consider them as viable school computers. However, with the advent of cheaper chip technologies and a number of improvements to portability, I’m pleased to report the M11x is a great smaller notebook with lots of staying power. Devin reviewed this laptop in April so check out his comments. This is a “heavy hitter” with lots of processor power but it’s a bit on the heavier side. We’re big fans, but check it out in the store before committing to a purchase. [Product Page]

Snag Oxhorn’s music from iTunes: itunes.apple.com Associate Professor Evil has no use for the key to the city of Orgrimmar, and so he and Barnaby must come up with a new plan to harness great power! This movie placed second in the Action / Adventure category during the Blizzcon 2007 Machinima Contest. Here are the lyrics to the credits song: www.bloggingwithclass.com Here is the movie script: www.bloggingwithclass.com Here is my account of Blizzcon 2007: www.bloggingwithclass.com Note: I have received a bit of confusion concerning my mention of Mark Jacobs in the movie. Some think that when the gold farmer said that Jacobs sucks that I think Jacobs sucks, which is not the case at all. I like Mark Jacobs. I had a gold farmer say that; and Associate Professor Evil slapped him for doing so. I played Dark Age of Camelot for nearly two years and loved every moment of it, so I have great respect for Mark Jacobs and his stance on gold farming. Which is why I had the shout-out in the movie. It is only natural that gold farmers would hate him though, which is why my character said what he did. But he got his just rewards!

Apple backpedaling on some iOS development restrictions, will allow third party tools and ad services
Woah, who saw this coming? Apple has changed its super-controversial stance on third party developer tools for iOS apps, now allowing any and all comers, “as long as the resulting apps do not download any code.” We’re guessing this is mostly a nod to game developers, who use ported engines like Unreal and interpreters like Lua, but it also apparently covers apps developed in Adobe Flash CS5. In addition, the rules on mobile advertising have changed, so AdMob ads are seemingly back in, and Apple’s also publishing its App Store Review Guidelines at long last, which will give developers a better idea of how their apps are going to be scrutinized by Apple before they submit them. We’re sure we’ll be hearing plenty in the coming weeks as developers and arm chair analysts rifle through Apple’s so-far-secretive guidelines, but mostly we’re just excited to see what sort of innovation and development accessibility we’ve been missing out on while these third party tools have been off the market. The full (and brief) release can be found after the break.
Update: Google’s responded to the newly-relaxed restrictions, saying “Apple’s new terms will keep in-app advertising on the iPhone open to many different mobile ad competitors and enable advertising solutions that operate across a wide range of platforms.”
Update 2: Our friend John Paczkowski at All Things Digital has Adobe’s statement: “We are encouraged to see Apple lifting its restrictions on its licensing terms, giving developers the freedom to choose what tools they use to develop applications for Apple devices.”
Update 3: In case the last update didn’t give it away enough, Adobe announced in a blog post that it’ll resume development on its Packager for iPhone tools, for Flash CS5 devs who want to convert their work to the portable powerhouse.
Meanwhile, it seems like it’s time for a little recap:
- Apple’s iPhone lockdown: apps must be written in one of three languages, Adobe in the hurt locker
- Adobe says iPhone / iPad adoption and ‘alternative technologies’ (cough, HTML5) could harm its business
- Steve Jobs responds directly to developer over new iPhone SDK rules, cites blog for explanation
- Steve Jobs publishes some ‘thoughts on Flash’… many, many thoughts on Flash
- Adobe’s CEO: Jobs’ Flash letter is a ‘smokescreen’ for ‘cumbersome’ restrictions (update: video)
- Adobe decries Apple’s ‘walled garden,’ yet pledges ‘best tools’ for HTML5
- Adobe targets Apple in ad campaign launched today, publishes open letter from founders
- Steve Jobs’ D8 interview: the video highlights (updated)
- Adobe’s CEO: ‘we’ve moved on’ from Apple’s argument, and Flash still rules

This creepy looking doll is born out of a partnership between Griffin and ScrollMotion, makers of the Iceberg Reader, and a leading developer of original apps for the iPhone. The result of the partnership, called Griffin + Iceberg Kids, is Woogie.
Woogie is a hybrid of a stuffed animal with six legs and a protective case for the iPhone and iPod touch. Woogie is designed to go wherever your kids are, home, the car, or anywhere else your kid needs to be entertained.
Woogie has two built-in speakers to play with Iceberg Kids eBooks, music, videos, and more. The Woogie is only $19.99 and will work with all generations of the iPod Touch and iPhone. It also comes with it’s own app.
