    Nice work iGary. Switchers are always so surprised that computers can e so intuitive/easy. Most of mine end up complaining that I didn't make them switch earlier. :eek:

    Yeah, I raised my daughter on the Mac these last few years. Now that she's 19, what does she go out and buy herself? A Dell. :rolleyes:

    And yes, she's had all kinds of problems with it.

    Gary, quit talking about me without my permission. :mad:

    Yep, got one of the shiny new iMacs yesterday. Love it so far. Thought about getting a PowerBook, but my Toshiba laptop is still in good condition. :)

    Toshiba makes great laptops, the only thing wrong w/ them is they have Windows as their OS.

    I have no complaints about my Toshiba. Awesome machine. Once I get it cleaned out (major dust bunnies inside, I'd imagine) and add some RAM, I'll continue to use it. Just not as much :)

    Speaking of dust bunnies(well we weren't really but if i don't address it now here, i'll never remember it) I built my PC during Freshmen year of college the thing was fast as hell but it sounded like an F-14 on load up and i was forced to stuff wedges of paper in the different bays(i found the unused bays were vibrating from my spinning hd, let me repeat though the thing was fast) anyway in addition to rock concert that played the whole time it was running, the thing had an entire family tree of dust bunnies.

    Anyway to my point does the Al PB accumulate dust bunnies like this and do i need to clean it like they do?? Thanks in advance guys!

    My sister got an iBook after borrowing my PB a lot. She has no complaints. I'm always telling my friends they need to get macs ("problem? this wouldnt happen on a mac!"). I swore i wouldnt become a pushy, annoying mac proselytizer, but alas, i cant resist. I think they know i'm right though. :)

    Yeah, my Satellite does that. Any time I've got Photoshop and iTunes open together, I half expect a guy in a reflective vest to start waving glowing sticks at me.

    My favorite part of the "switch" so far happened about an hour ago. I needed to print off a UPS tracking slip to prove that a package had been delivered (stupid office people at my apartment complex)...I plugged in my HP printer, clicked print...and it worked. I was stunned. So easy.

    Thinking about the virus-IM'ing thing that was posted earlier...I've had a bunch of friends try to IM me viruses, to have them say "Ahahahahahahah you are so dumb...you're computer is toasted."

    Little do they know that they just wasted their time...and how sad they'll be when I send it back to them in a week. :p
