Definitely a huge performance improvement from my dual 1GHz G4 box.
I never thought a computer could be made out of such high quality materials... very slick.
My G5 tower is definitely not lightweight... this thing is solid metaljtanner said:Very nice! I bought my first Mac (TiBook 800) a couple years ago. Now, I can't live without it. You'll enjoy it for years to come.

Wow, have you always had the Newton logo in your avatar. Been seeing it all this time and it never registered. I used a Newton for quite a while. It must me in a drawer around here someplace.

Actually there was a free upgrade from Apple on those about 8 months ago. They mailed out a whole new cooling assembly which took about 10 minutes to do, it's much better now, barely noticeable.MattG said:Well, a G4 tower would satisfy your performance needs most likely, especially a dual processor one.

I almost miss having my PB sitting on top of the reciever with iTunes visualization turned on.NMRJock said:I switched to a 12" PB after a long line of PC laptops (and a few desktops). I bought the bluetooth wireless mouse and keyboard for the office and I have an Airport Extreme card for home.
I always badmouthed Macs, but I really like OSX and I love my Powerbook.
A friend just bought me the new 40 GB clickwheel IPod and I have the remote, carrying case, and car kit for it. After all these years of Mac bashing I'm becoming a Steve Jobs posterchild!
while most pancreatic cancer is quite deadly news reports are that he had a slow growing type of cancer that is not the type we are most familiar with. We can only hope for the best.babak said:Speaking of Jobs he's status post resection of pancreatic CA with good results but this at best is not a pleasant one. The odds are against him.
