Hey there. I haven't done much posting here, but sure have done a LOT of lurking. I am a proud owner of a mirrored door drive dual 1GHZ PMG4 (With a Combo and a Super), and a 17" LCD. I got this setup last Christmas. I didn't have to pay a dime, so I can't complain. Well, I've also got an ancient Gateway laptop from about 5 years ago that I got as a grad. present from H.S. and at the time it cost a whopping $5K!!!! I have since sworn off PC's. (Before my current desktop, I had an iMac DV SE+.) I'm a Mac lover all the way. Anyhow, the laptop bug has bitten me. More specifically, the powerbook bug. I've caved to the crave. I ordered a 12" Powerbook and 10gig iPod- so I can take advantage of the 200 buck rebate. Good deal, I think. (As long as it won't be a huge problem with me not taking delivery of the system until after 9/27. I heard it won't be a problem, but we'll see.) My config: 12" Powerbook- 1Ghz / Combo 256 Ram installed (512 ordered from Smalldog) 60 Gig HD Airport Extreme Installed AppleCare plan 10 Gig iPod (and some holder, I don't remember brand) New iTrip Also got a sleeve from Apple for the PB- its one of the neoprene ones with handle. Sooo- my question to all the 12" PB owners out there: DO YOU LOVE IT???? (I have no qualms about screen size as I already have a primary system at home. I just want portability. I'll be doing a little bit of photoshop, final cut express, writing, and wi-fi'ing) I hope you do, cuz it's still a chunk of change I just spent. I just wish I knew if I'll get this thing before they release the G5 PB's 'sometime before the end of next year'. Hehehehe.... Anyone else order the new 12" yet? I'm just excited as all hell. I didn't order the AE base station- I'm hoping I can use a Linksys or Netgear. Anyone know if I'll have problems with that? Like I said, my main system is a Mac. I've got cable modem from comcast, so hopefully setting up wi-fi in my apartment should be a snap. ANY usefull info, tips, advice, rants, raves, psychotic shout-outs, or anything else you'd care to contribute to my travelling sideshow of euphoria- I'd appreciate it. Sorry this was a bit long. I should've been posting more here more often. Guess I can start now. (Don't worry- I've sprayed 'G5 bug repellant' on me so I don't get bitten by that bug too. The recipe for this special 'concoction' of mine is looking at your credit card statement. And repeat. This technique should stop ANY thoughts of G5 gratification. It worked for me. Hehehhe...) Thanks everyone.
