    Learning to spell




















    :p Sorry, but I just had to say that. Er... stuff. Server, games, music (listening and making), video (watching and some editing), web (surfing and making), homework, etc, etc, etc. It's multipurpose, like for most people

    Mainly replying to forum threads about why I have a Mac. Oh, and I bought a back up Mac recently, just in case Alpha Mac ever goes down and a thread goes by without me justifying my Macs in it! :eek:


    Nah, mainly music and uni assignments at the moment though. :)

    I use my Mac for everything haha.
    I do film editing all the time with Final Cut Pro
    I am constantly using Motion, Studio MX 2004, Photoshop CS2 and a new favorite Painter 9. Amazing machines, I'll even occasionally mix in a little WoW.

    Not to mention, its great for intimidating your PC to get its act together so that maybe it to will be used : )

    -Blogging (I do that pretty crappily too)
    -Surfing
    -Mailing
    -AIMing
    -Digital Photos
    -Research
    -Paper Writing
    -Occasional video editing

    Lately: Checking news, MacRumors, IM, during downtimes in games (waiting for turns, unskippable cutscenes and movies I've seen countless times before).


    AP = AirPort? The Associated Press?
    BT = BitTorrent? British Telecom?
