Apple released brand new

Apple released brand new versions of all their hardware, and I want to change. New Powerbooks with FW ports built in, and a graphite iBook, but what is it about moving from PC to Mac that gives one the feeling of coming out the proverbial closet and shielding themselves from being pelted with tomatoes?

The iBook still looks like a toilet seat, although I do covet the Powerbook.

We welcome any true believers! No tomatoes here.

Bleh. Why in the world do they have an animated GIF for "hot news headlines"? That's just dumb.

I have the same take on this as I do in what I eat and what I wear. Use whichever platform or combination of platforms you want, I'll do the same.

Anybody who eats sauerkraut is a Nazi. Period.

it's cute, but I could never constrain myself to an 800 x 600 display, without the option of connecting an external monitor.

am i the only one who can't cope with less than 1024 x 768?

Just wait till you're eyes start going bad from eyestrain. You'll welcome the 800x600 choice. -grin

From the Apple web site:

"...the new Power Mac G4. This is not just the fastest Mac in history. It’s the fastest personal computer in history."

Bullshit. Someone over there is smoking some industrial grade crack.
