Cool beans. Ironically even though I am a very very happy Mac user (I have 6 mac laptops and 1 Powermac G3), I still have to use a PC laptop to run certain programs that don't work well in emulation such as SPSS or SAS, etc. etc. Math intensive statistical crunching. Also I know that Mac users have a limited selection of games as well. So do you use a PC laptop in addition to your Mac and why? (no flaming dudes, it's a question of practicality). And no, I'm no Windoze lover either. Also I love my IBM Thinkpad 600E series laptop. To be honest, I think that IBM makes very durable and good quality laptops comparable to Apple although Apple's computers are much more stable. But the Thinkpad does have one virtue which is interchangeability. For example, I don't have to dislodge around 40 screws just to replace a hard drive Only the Powerbook G3 have that ability as well.
