I never thought I'd be getting a new Mac this soon...but certain events dictate that getting one now makes a lot of sense. 1. I'll be the only one in my family with a Mac powerful enough to host a 4-way iChat video conference 2. I'll have a 20 inch screen instead of the 17 inch I have now. 3. 250 GB hard drive = one less external drive = less desk clutter 4. G5-based CPU instead of G4, 'nuff said 5. 512 MB RAM built in, no need to upgrade RAM 6. For once, I can just pick up the stock model at my local Apple Store and not have to wait or pay for shipping All that's left to decide is when...since I'm going to Vermont in 5 days, I'm currently in an online college class, and I need to take the midterm for that class next week.
