    i got him an iMac DV off of ebay. its 450, 256, 10gig (yikes) and i loaded x on it. its in mint condition, and at a cool 230 bucks you cant go wrong. I would like to see a 7 year old wintel box run xp on an equal processor scale with that much memory and be able to do half the stuff he can with his perfect little iMac. My family has the same one in the kitchen, and has since it came out, so i knew it was a great buy.

    Cool - my family members have a couple of those, at even lower MHz, all still going strong with never a problem. They may be old but, those iMac G3s were good machines!

    I think many PC people are sceptical about Macs

    Yes -- I know that.

    But I was specifically interested in hearing what his views were before he got the Mac.

    well before i met my friend i didnt really think about apple computers and when i met him i thought it was really dumb until he showed me expose'. now i know its not the coolist thing but it was impressive enough to get me even more interested and what hooked me was the fact that you could find any file really easily. i was only skeptical after i got it because i thought that there MUST be some huge flaw but i began to realize that there wasn't going to be one
