I am thinking of buying a MBP but got to think if it were tough enough to endure the normal day of at student. What are your experiences and do you think a Thinkpad would be better? I got a Zepto and that sucks in that part!

Have a nice weekend.

I am a medical student and I bought the Mac Book Pro and I have no problem with it at all. I just put it into the sleeve I bought for it and then put the entire package into my backpack. Obviously it will not be able to take as much a beating as the IBM thinkpad, but the IBM thinkpad is not in the same category as the mac book pro. The MBP can't take that much of a beating because of the multitude of components, but it can handle being a student's piece of equipment if you are a careful person and not prone to bumping into things all the time or dropping your computer.
