    Hey all,

    My friend who goes to IU called me up today for information on buying a mac. I explained to him that for what he wanted to do a 12" iBook would be more than enough power. He was really sold, however, when I let me in on the deal macmall is running right now.

    They have $50 off all iBook ($100 off powerbooks and powermacs)
    A Free 1GB stick of ram with $39.99 install charge
    A Free All-In-One Espon Printer
    And a Free Carrying case and sleeve

    After rebate he would only pay $990 :eek: He then got really pumped and said he is going to place his order in the next few day haha. My work here has been done... and this from the guy who has been burned many times by Apple ;)

    P.S. I just had my first very negative experience with Dell but that is for another time and another thread haha.

    Good work!
    I myself am about to help another friend return to the folds.
    She used to use a Mac years ago I believe, and I've been re-educating her over the past few weeks. She i believe is now keen to buy a Powerbook!

    Only dilemma for me is to decide whether to help her buy a refurb or new one!

    Yeah, just to clarify I have been using a mac for about two years now. It is my friend who switched to mac :) He just placed the order a few hours ago for his new 12" iBook.

    I hope that she will be successful with the purchase. The refurb is a good deal for those that want to save some money.
