    We have all gone Stark Raving Mad!!!!!!

    We are so hyped up about this MWSF, that I think we are going blow up MacRumor's server!! I actually read a post eariler that someone predicted a wristwatch for MWSF! Are you kidding me? Yikes people. Simmer it down.

    At BEST we will see a few processor upgrades and the iMac. Maybe a few software upgrades, and thats IT! All of this hype is about the new iMac people. The iMac. A HUGE letdown is coming if we keep this up! I know its fun, and a total geek-fest, but c'mon. Think realistically.

    What about limiting the number of guests so that registered members are assured access? Just an idea.

    If the server is too dogged, you guys can stroll over to my other site, http://www.ipodhacks.com and enjoy the forums there. We're having about 1/4 the load of visitors over there as macrumors.com.

    no recent comments

    the admins took down recent comments on the front page. and were did all these newbies come from i mean its cool that theres this many mac posters cuz I remeber searching Windowze rumor sites (no were as many) and there were so few people posting compared to this. And last whats with 5% market share if you based it on people who actuaslly care about the computer Apple would have the 95%. rthis is sweet but i hope we dont lose all are accounts.

    re: letdown?

    if the new lcd imac is cool, assuming it really comes out in a few days, won't be a letdown for me

    i love my ibook and even at 300 mhz running os 9, i don't find it slow for my purposes, but i found i don't like to take my computing with me so the thing actually always stays home with us

    ...so i could actually envision my next mac being a desktop like an lcd imac with an extremely small footprint which would be perfect for my purposes which doesn't require a more expensive mobile laptop

    has anybody else owned a laptop only to use it exclusively at home?

    Re: re: letdown?

    I dont but all my friends that have protables use them as a desktop.. some of them even run servers one them! They leave them on all the time and they get really hot. Thats why I went for a tower... It would be cool to bring my Mac with me... but I woulnd use it enuph to justify a $1200 to $3500 investment. Maybe when I start making a little more money.

    thanks, evildead

    i suspected that a lot of macusers have portables as desktop replacements

    when you only own a desktop, it is so easy to picture yourself with a laptop at all times, but in reality, one has to watch out so it won't be stolen or have coffee or soda spilled on it

    that means, don't drink, go to the bathrooom with laptop bag in hand, keep the laptop bag covered while unattended in a car, and carry that darn thing around and kill your shoulder because the laptop comes with an adapter and one always adds junk to their laptop bag anyways even if it's magazines, textbooks, and m and m's which just adds to the weight of a laptop bag which makes the overall experience very hard on the shoulders

    as for leaving the laptop on all the time, it does get hot and it is safer to keep a desktop on all the time instead of a laptop

    RE: networkman

    Funny you sould mention spilling on your protable. I have a buddy that just got an iPod. He covered the whole thing with some kind of clear skicky plasic. I think its ment for book covers and stuff like that. He doenst want to mess it up. I wouldnt want to be like that with a protable computer. I would probably end up getting a Dell just so when I put a giant ding or scratch in it, I wouldnt care. Then again... I wouldnt want to bee seen in public with a Windows machine. Someone might mistake me for that kid from the comershals.... Dude... your getting a Dell...

    I like networkman :)

    U always seem to have the right idea about things here. I completely agree with u on the laptop issue. My TiBook is my first portable, and I relate to everything u mentioned above. I literally baby this thing so much, it's pathetic! And yes, I did get this thing to replace my Starmax tower...very nice upgrade as far as I'm concerned! :D

    Now I'm just waiting to get my hands on a new tower, not because I need it....because I'm a junkie!
