How to help a college student save her money?

My 19-year-old daughter loves to spend every dollar she earns. She is good about working, but she's awful at saving. She's got a great summer job, and I want that money to both cover some of her college tuition AND her living expenses in the fall. But how do I do that without becoming an obnoxious helicopter parent? [more inside]

Seeking Laptop Buying Tips for College Life: Recommendations? Mac-XP Networking?

First, a follow-up. I'm going back to school this spring! Thanks for the words of wisdom and encouragement, guys! I'm probably going to be studying either history (with the goal of teaching) or photojournalism, but I haven't decided for sure yet.

Secondly, I'm contemplating getting a laptop for my return to collegiate life. Are they as useful and omnipresent in college life as they seem to be? If so, what laptop do you recommend? I must admit, I have become iCurious. Will I have problems networking with my XP machine if I go the Mac route? If I don't, what manufacturer do you recommend? My budget is $1000 or below, but I could go up to $1500 if you give me a really compelling reason.
