    I always find it interesting that there is a small (but vocal) group of folk who haven't quite made the switch yet... but still frequent a Mac rumor site...

    Yeah, nothing worse then them damn vocal non-mac owning weirdo's who have nothing to do but sit around on their PC's reading macrumors.

    Oh wait, that's me!

    :D

    Hey now! Be nice :) Some of us are low on funds and parental units won't forward the cash even though they promised.

    I think this must be the third reminder in the last hour that I need a Mac. *waits for lightning to strike or something*

    But do you suffer from Mac Envy, or is it just some sort of odd fascination?

    I drool over Eye's mac all the time. And the G4s in our artlab. I'm constantly reminded that a PC doesn't cut it for this artist.

    when i owned a mac clone, by pwer computing, did that count as a mac?

    many people own PCs by companies other than IBM and the PC is actually really only an IBM machine...my "PC" is a Compaq

    i wonder if clones will ever come out again? and if they do, will it hurt apple's sales drastically or spread the influence of the much superior macintosh operating system?

    it is steve jobs who said, "my biggest mistake was thinking apple was a hardware company instead of a software company" right after he was fired...he saw how bill gates and paul allen made the tens of billions and ruled the market without ever having built a machine

    it could have been jobs and the woz, instead of bill g and paul allen who ended up ruling the personal computer market:(

    Funny...most that don't own a mac are waiting for the money...wait, that includes me too :eek:.

    I'll get a pb soon...hopefully a 1 GHz after the next update...why do I continue to post here...I WANT MY AVATAR! :D

    ...well, and this is also a cool site to post on.:) Can always keep in touch with rumors...and when I do get my mac, I can get help using it here. At least I hope so.

    i got my mac.... and have never been without one... personally, i cant stand PC's... especially bargain ones. They make have a "faster" processor than a mac, but they sure dont work like any mac ive seen since the old 33 MHz ones!
