    i went in to my local Mac shop, and they had an :apple:TV in there. When Jobs announced it, and after i researched it a bit, i decided that i had no need for it. But after having a play with it, I really, really want one! Its such a simple idea, perfectly executed.

    And while I was there, I went to have a play on the 24" iMac. There were about a dozen people at the window looking at it. It is an absolutely stunning machine. I saw it on the Apple site, and there was a bit of lust happening. But when I saw it in the flesh (plastic?), the lust factor rocketed :D

    I've just come back from a neighbor's birthday party, and she had and iPod HiFi playing the music. Everyone here knows how small the speakers are, but they put out a damn good noise! She had it up really loud; loud enough to be clearly heard about 70 metres away. When i got close to it, it wasn't distorting at all. I used to think it was overpriced at $500, but now i can see why it cost that much.

    I'm using my mum's toshiba pc to play NFS Carbon, because my macbook doesn't have the graphical power to push it. I had Carbon open, and i switched back to the Finder (or whatever Windows calls it), and looked through some files to find a save editor or something. When people complain about the old iMacs being slow at running 10.4, they have no idea what slow is; this computer was taking ages to open a folder. And it isn't an old computer either; i think its the early 2006 model, and i think it has a 1.7 GHz Celeron chip and a gig of RAM. It made my 667 MHz G4 TiBook with 768 MB RAM look fast. Windows sucks at multitasking

    And Mac OS X is just something of its own. It is just gorgeous. It works so smoothly and brilliantly (most of the time). The team who worked on it have done a fantastic job. I can never think of a way OS X could be improved, but every time the release a new version, i wonder how i could have ever lived without that feature (fast user switching, widgets, expose, etc.)

    Congrats if you read it all. this is what happens when you make a post at 1:15 in the morning :rolleyes:

    Is it really just that, or was there some alcohol involved (from the party) as well? :p ;)

    I do however agree with everything you said. I actually convinced my uncle to buy a 24'' iMac a few months ago and he loves it!
