I'm switching. Today in fact. This might be the last time I ever have to use a PC. At 5 PM, I'm going to drive over to the Apple Store at Tice's Corner in New Jersey. In my right hand-- three-thousand dollars. In my left-- student discount. I decided on a 17" Powerbook. Up until a few days ago, I was in the group of people complaining about how the 15" TiBook needs updates and I would wait it out until it got them. I in an ideal situation, I would, but there's a few reasons why I decided to grab the 17" instead. 1. I have a 1600x1200 resolution monitor now. Jumping down 4 inches and a bunch of pixels to a 15" notebook would be murder on my eyes. I need desktop space to work well. Pet peeve. 2. Waiting on updates to the 15" or 17" will only yeild me a faster bus and a few hundred megahertz. Granted, the 15" is going to get Airport Extreme and Bluetooth, so there's more of a reason to wait if you have your heart set on the 15". However, I'm going to college before the updates are going to appear. I'd rather get my computer before school starts than have to deal with lugging the PC tower and monitor halfway across the country just to gain a minor speed boost. 3. My financial situation is best described as strange. If I get the computer today, I can pay for it. In two months, I'm going to be in a different place financially. A computer might be the last thing I can afford. So, I'm doing it. I might post some pictures and things on my website. I was also thinking of a 'switcher blog', but that's been done to death. If anyone is interested, post here and I'll let you know the URL!
