    Makes a good doorstop. Very fashionable. Industrial design will complement your decor. :)

    Reinstall the OS every 3-4 months, defrag, run Virus and anti spyware software.

    * Play games on them
    * Easily create cool-looking screensavers with Quartz Composer
    * Mess about with Dashbard, Expose, fast user switching, Photobooth, FrontRow
    * Show off Ken Burns effect with soundtrack in iPhoto
    * Produce really slick presentations in Keynote with sophistictated (yet simple and subtle) effects
    * Pretend to be Steve Jobs and demonstrate how to create a DVD, Gargageband tune, magazine article or website in under five minutes.

    You can take pictures of your computer's surroundings combined with screenshots, create a Powerpoint-esque presentation from those pictures, set it to music of your choosing, export it to Quicktime, transfer it to your server, post an appropriate encrypted blog entry, alert various people in your address book by email or phone (and giving them the decryption key), mark the event in your calendar, and watch it on your television in Ohio (with your computer sitting in Venezuela)... all by speaking instructions to it over the phone.

    I think the question should be:

    "What can you do with a Mac?" :)

    PCIExtreme on an old Power Mac G3 with a Radeon 7000. Hacked Quartz Extreme on 10.4.3 never looked so good.

    The effect that comes when pressing those keys reminds me of an old TV program late nights called "THe Darkside".

    Yah. I'm kidding. Did you notice that I own a Mac? I also have nearly 2500 posts on a Mac forum. I also spelt "Mac" incorrectly to further convey the irony.

    Looks like I snagged another little fishy.

    When ever I am showing off Mac OS X I always:

    SHIFT-F9
    SHIFT-F10
    SHIFT-F11
    SHIFT-F12

    I take great pride in visiting my local PC world store, I hang around the Macs and then when a poor helpless salesman wanders into stricking distance the conversation goes like this:

    "can I help you sir?"

    "yeap, do you know anything about macs?"

    "er, no not really"

    "then I sir, can help you!"

    I then normally (depending on the machines they have in stock), open up iTunes, iPhoto and set them to sharing. Switch on Airport. Press shift-F9/F10/F11/12, the perform a couple of spotight searches. Set iChat to Bonjour, and if front row is installed show them command-esc (that one really wows them!)

    Next it is over to the next Mac, switch on sharing etc and start to stream iTunes, iPhoto and iChat. All within a few in a few minutes!!!!

    Now that is what COOL with OS X!!!!!
