I had bought an iBook G4 back in July of 2005 and that ended up being my main machine for about a year. I had to switch back to Windows since so much software that I needed only ran on Windows and it just made more sense. Just this past February I replaced that machine since it was having some serious issues and wasn't worth the time or money to troubleshoot. The machine I have now has an Athlon64 x2 4200+, 1GB RAM, a 320GB hard disk, the standard DVD writer, and I installed a GeForce 7600GT 256MB video card in it. The iBook has a 1.2GHz G4, 1.25GB RAM, a 60GB hard disk, and a combo drive. I have a 160GB external hard disk and a DVD writer to hook up to it. I was happy with Vista for a bit but lately it's starting to become a real pain. I have reinstalled it a few times in the past few months since it just gets incredibly slow for no real reason (I'm quite experience with computers and know how to keep Windows running properly) and some of the drivers for the hardware in here cause conflicts with certain software. After buying an iPod touch I discovered that QuickTime still causes a blue screen on here and it's due to some sort of conflict between the NVIDIA SATA drivers and QuickTime. I'm getting tired of dealing with problem after problem, and although this is a store-bought system rather than a custom build, it is configured pretty much how I would choose and with a clean install of Vista without the crap HP puts on here. I have become more and more tempted to just move back to my old iBook since I require so few programs anymore and I can find equivalents on Mac OS for what I need. Just that I have a computer I bought only 9 months ago that is quite superior in computing power. Right now I could not invest much in new computing hardware, maybe a new external drive, but that's about it. I'd be keeping my 19" monitor in use and the iBook would be hooked up pretty much like a desktop. So, would it be crazy for me to move back to that old iBook for daily use?
