    Okay, I did it. Finally. I just want to hear some validation and kind words, because my pocketbook's hurtin' right now. And my girlfriend sure as hell doesn't understand it.

    I finally upgraded my Cube, with a Powerlogix Dual-1.5Ghz G4, and got a 20.1" Dell 2005FPW to go along with it. Both should be coming either later this week, or early next week.

    So. Can I get a 'hell yeah!'?

    Hell Yeah, you should have held out for the new 20" iMac. I did and I'm soooo pleased.

    Yeah, well... shut up. :mad:

    Ah, just kiddin'. I know, I know, but I figure I can't afford anything but the low-low-end one, and I'd rather have the extra screen real-estate. Plus, come on - it's the Cube!

    Also, I paid for the screen last week, so not like I really had a choice!

    Yeah, of course I understand. The Cube was/is a classic of classics.

    And I can be a bitch at the best of times. Please pass the salt for some more rubbing.

    You are going to LOVE that screen...and no matter how cool the new iMacs are, the Cube is, by far, the best looking Mac ever. Hands down. Congrats on your purchase!

    Yeah, I gotta say, when I saw that the iMacs had been updated... man. That was a kick to the dangly-bits to say the least. I mean, I love the Cube, love it... uh, I won't get more specific. But I mean, that iMac... with it's sexy DDR2 RAM, and that hot X600 XT... wow.

    But can it love like the Cube can? Ha! I highly doubt it!

    Got it used for $375 shipped. I just saw they're being offered new for $396, though. I did manage to escape over $50 in Illinois taxes, though!

    The Cube is dead! Long live the Cube!

    (Yeah, it is a bit of a cult, within a cult. :D )

    Well, I put that extra $19 to good use, buying a large bottle of whiskey with which to forget the financial burdens the purchase of this monitor has heaped upon my shoulders!
