    Yasser Arafat is on his death bed. He's wearing a Newcastle top, Spurs shorts and Rangers socks.

    He said he wanted to be buried in the Gazza Strip.

    What's worse is that people have been so snowed over by Microsoft. Purchase an Apple. After owning it for two months you will dread going to work and having to use a PC. I fcking hate having to use my PC at work after making the switch.

    Yes, pb with the super drive, 12.1" screen. Lightweight and can be carried anywhere. Unlike PC laptops which only come in 15" screens, weigh twenty pounds, and are better served to level out a wobbly table. Love using Apple. I was VERY worried when I made the switch, now I'm happy that I did.

    I've got an etch-e-sketch that beats out your Mac. But it just doesn't come in a pretty color.

    Me too, I made the jump after the release of the original 12" PB about 2 years ago.

    Spoken like a man that has been brainwashed. Doesn't suprise me. Given the level of intellegence that I deal with everytime I call RR, I'm sure it didn't take very long. Free yourself from the bonds of oppression brother, step into the light, use a Mac for two months, you'll never go back to PC.

    The biggest notable difference that I've noticed thus far is the amount of apps you can have open, and not crash, or slow down. I've got the factory amount of RAM in my PB, 125 IIRC, and there's no slow down with having over 5 apps open at the same time. Try doing that on my work PC, which has double the amount of RAM, and I blue screen. I will never buy a PC for my home ever again.

    Rep for this man.

    Personally, I think this is just a cheap ploy for a new movie:

    "Weekend at Yasser's"

    I also have the 12" PB. I was able to convince my boss to let me use it as my work computer, only using the PC they bought for me when I need to use Access. Everyone in the office is now jealous since I'm the only one whose computer isn't crippled by spam, spyware, and viruses, plus have the advantage of being able to do a Keynote presentation anytime I want.

    And Zak, if you have the funds, I suggest picking up a nice 512 MB RAM chip. It will make it seem like you have a whole new computer.

    If people quit being stupid and downloading weatherbug and clicking yes on every certificate you see while surfing asian porn then nobody would have that problem.

    Eggy, you take the easy way out when criticizing macs. Sure, it's easy to use that as an example as Mac's traditionally pay far more attention to design versus PCs. But the bottom line is, performance-wise, Macs are far more practical and out-perform their PC relatives pretty easily. The only argument that can be made is PCs have better software, which is valid, however from a hardware only standpoint, Macs are far better.

    Mac's have been poor development and distribution models for years, which is why you rarely see them in traditional business applications.

    Also, are the new Mac's up to speed on high-end GPU performance? (I don't know at this point). Most non-console games come out for PC's.

    I just remember getting a huge laugh out of the portable Apples that looked like George Foreman Grills. The local Mac guy had a set of six on his desk for burn-in so one of the local yahoo's walks up with a sandwich saying "mind if I pop this here sammich on there for a minute or two - I just want some lines."

    Zak your basing your opinion on the fact that you can surf the internet faster on your new mac than your old P3.

    Computers are used for alot more than that.

    Please tell me why you like the G5 processor compared to an Intel or AMD processor.

    Is the processor really the main issue here? In my opinion allocation of resources is far more important. Sure, you'll be able to dazzle and amaze the masses of bigsoccer with your knowledge of how much "faster" the PC CPU benchmarks are, but in practical application does that really matter?

    AMD has been making that point for years: "clock speed" may make the geeks get big old stiffies, but as a practical matter it's only marginally useful as a comparison tool.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. What does it matter if you have a Pentium IV that is pushing 2 gig of speed, if you can't have more than four apps open at any given time?

    I think at the end of the day user experience plays the biggest part in my decision as a user. I prefer the user experience in OS X over the user experience in Windows. I use Windows for work and have to support it throughout the day as part of my job and I don't dread it, I just like to come home and use my PowerBook more.

    The reason I brought up processors is because it's one of the main differences, not just the OS. No Mac user ever even mentions it


    I call bulshít. I've got a Dell laptop and I roll right alot with Outlook, Opera and 2 RDP sessions open along with a Virtual Machine that runs SUSE Linux 9.1. I'm sure I can open more but with two operating systems going do I need more?
