    OT: Rec if you were going to buy a MAC

    <Uh the demo need a quad processor P4 running at 3.6 ghz that's why not.>

    Does seem like another CEO's visionary leap, into the ditch, as most are. But have you noticed what Windows will do to a multi-gigahertz processor?

    btw. dammit. The overall impression people have given me of the mac (I'll just blame you) convinced me to get one for the spouse, which did have some gratifying consequences. I was not warned of one thing; after years of supplying the tech support for a windows machine, twiddling and patching and de-spamifying, erecting firewalls and spyware scans, I thought I had built up some cred for those mysterious PC's.

    Her only two questions after turning the iBook on, out of the box, (never having touch a mac before) were:
    1) what's the password for the wifi AP?
    2) would you keep your hands off this laptop, forever?

    I feel I have lost respect. You could have warned me.

      If so, you might want to put Firefox on it first. That whole widget issue in Safari stinks. Way too much like ActiveX.

      That's one reason why I switched to OS X I was tired of dealing with Windows crap, at work and at home.

      I am feeling jilted at the moment. Jobs just ripped me off. of course Watch Apple's stock fall next quarter as their sales drop like a rock, Watch them never pick up again as people go what this Apple/intel box at 4 ghz is twice the price of this Dell/intel box at 4 ghz.

      Yea right this is going to go down hill really friggin fast. Of course odds are I could be wrong. I was wrong on the annoucement it'self

      • It would seem you were correct on the announcement:

        h++p://www.macworld.com/news/2005/06/06/powerpcintel/index.php
        "At its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) today, Apple announced plans to begin delivering models of its Macintosh computers using Intel microprocessors by June 2006, and to transition all of its Macs to using Intel microprocessors by the end of 2007. Apple previewed a Mac OS X Tiger system running on an Intel-based Mac to the audience of developers attending Apple CEO Steve Jobs� keynote address."
