    Since the time I got my powerbook earlier this year, I've fallen in love with macs. I love them so dearly now. And I've come to learn something...

    BUYING MACS IS ADDICTIVE AS HELL!

    I have my amazing Pbook 15" aluminum which I use more than my PC now and well I bought a PowerMac G4 for $150 and now I want a Pismo! Is this normal? I think I have a problem. Someone help!

    I will graciously volunteer to help with your Mac buying addiction. All you have to do is give all of your money, credit cards and bank accounts to me and you can't buy any more Macs. It's foolproof!

    I'm really glad that all I have is a debit card. If I had a credit card, there would probably be a $2000-$3000 charge on it from buying a quad G5 right now.

    Also did I mention that I got the Pbook that I'm using right now (in my sig) for $1000? Oh yes I find the best deals.

    I know exactly what you mean, if I could afford it I would but every Mac that is available right now. I got my PB right after the latest revision and now I just bought a G4 dual 867 MDD,1GB RAM,Radeon 9000 64MB AGP,60GB & 80Gb HD, combo drive for $640. I cant wait to get it even though it is a few years old. Buying Macs is very addictive.

    My friend has a green clamshell he's willing to part with...G3 300mhz I think? Something like that, with a whopping 128MB of RAM. Oh yeah.

    I wish I had a couple extra zero's at the end of my salary. I'd be buying tons of apple products.

    I think it has to do with the how small the mac community is. You're pretty much a die-hard fan if you own a mac. There's no middle ground I don't think.

    Oh holy crap I totally forgot! Someone I know is selling a G4 Tower, 500mhz, 512MB RAM, 16mb gfx card, for $100 because it has no hard drive. If you're interested I could email him for you.
