    what do you think of this rumor?



    here's what I would want that device for:

    I have an xbox for the gamer inside of me, as gaming was the only good reason for not switching. However, I don't have a TV set or an extra monitor so I've wanted to be able to plug the xbox into the powerbook. Yeah, I can use s-video with existing capture devices, but I wanted component inputs to get 480p and 720p (which the 15" is capable of)

    ok, so technically, I haven't switched yet, although I've been wanting to for a long long time. Only problem is I don't have the money yet. So I'll probably have to wait 'til beginning of summer before purchasing.

    However, I already know which model I want to get. A 15" AlBook /w superdrive and maxout RAM. Albeit, that might change if new laptops come out.

    here's what I plan on doing /w the laptop.

    I'm a drummer, so I'll be using a usb midi adapter /w GarageBand to fiddle around /w amateur music composition.

    an M-Audio Sonica Theater for watching DVDs and surround sound.

    I also have an ipod so that'll be plugged into the firewire 400 port.

    damn I like using up all the ports...

    please don't bump a thread - if it doesn't get any responses that's the way it goes...

    Interesting device...but I wouldn't get it until it proved itself for a while.

    Thanks for the info Mr. Anderson. I am new and wasn't aware of that rule. Thanks for pointing it out.

    when you answer your own thread, therefor "bumping" it back to the top of the forum page.

    I don't think so.

    This is a profoundly stupid rumor. Have you priced a HDTV tuner lately? I see them at prices up to $700. Apple rarely takes the position of loss-leader of any market that it enters. The whole thing seems so inelegant, so kludgey, so un-Mac-like. If they said that this was part of Gateway's MediaPC plans, I could accept it. Apple? Na-a-a-ah.
