    I love it.

    Tom Clancy says it in one short simple sentence...


    "You gotta get a Mac."

    I thought it was interesting that his TiBook had 10.1.4....

    Not 10.2 or even 10.1.5....

    Interesting..

    I would have turned around and brought it back and told them to update it, for free - that is weird.

    Anyway, good press coverage overall :D

    totally. over at fry's here in austn, TX, they have 10.1.3 on their macs, or did about 2 weeks ago. it's really stupid. but the ones at Comp USA have 10.2, so i am covered. it's so much smoother. gosh i need a mac.

    [edit] i was just talking about the powebooks here BTW [/edit]

    Here's another switcher, but with an interesting additional reason for switching.

    hahahaha... that's not a new reason! look at janie porche... "when was the last time your laptop got you a date?"

    ah well. that's classic. those repetitious unix accolades get kind of.. repetitious...

    I was in a wi-fi connected coffeeshop (lots of 'em here in NoCal) and noticed a man surfing on a Ti.

    When I asked him what model it was, he said: "800. I got it a few months ago. I love it. I used to be a Unix guy, so..." Basically, the guy raved on about his new Mac, and all I asked him was a question about his processor.

    Now that's a Mac-convert. ;)

    When I was at the grand opening of the Houston Area Apple store, a bunch of *nix guys were drooling over the towers running Jag..

    I've read that a lot of Linux/Unix guys are coming over to the Mac platform in droves..
