Was wondering what is on peoples Christmas wish lists, and what kind of setups people are hoping to have come the new year.

I'm looking forward to running a 10.4 on a dual (+core) G4 15.2" powerbook.

Sorry if this is a *bit* early, only 10 weeks to go!

Dual? or dual core? :D

I'm happy as larry with the new 20" iMac, looking forward to getting Tiger on it sometime next year. There really isn't anything I want for christmas.

...oh, er, accept an Aston Martin DB9 :D

I wouldn't mind finding a Nintendo DS in my stocking....
a Canon XL-2 under the tree......
a winning lottery ticket.......
or a phone call from SBC or the cable company saying they can finally provide my house with high-speed internet (that would be the best of all gifts).....SBC being the company that promised me they could before we moved in but backed out 2 weeks later :( I'm still bitter!

My Powerbook is in dire need of more ram...512 would do. It could also use a BTMouseJR and a Crumpler School Hymn. GTA SA would be a great way to lower productivity. I'm pretty cheap to shop for this year :D

Would be nice with an new iPod, mine is worn-out.
A 1GB stick for my Powerbook could also be nice.

Hopeully we'll have a new 12-incher with a better GPU, come on apple !!
If apple releases a dual core 12" PB with a better GPU, then i'll sell mine and get the new model.

I applaud you for posting your wish list online. Seems to be a very attainable goal.

My Dear Santa is for a Power Mac G5. Then early next year to Tiger.

I don't know what I want.. jeez...

What do I spend my time on:

Work.... hmm, nothing there (unless someone decides they want to give me three or four Trimble R7's)

Video... hmm, blank dvdrs make a good gift, FinalCutExpress

Music... damn, I saw Death Cab for Cutie last night (great show!) but I have all their cds, I can't think of many other cds I long for.

Web Design... ugh, just bought a CSS book...

Mac, iPod... iGuess... might be hard to find this christmas!

I dread the holidays... asking for gifts, having to give and always getting crappy presents from people who don't know you very well (my parents), what a bitch of a time. I have to go home and see them... christ, mail me cash and I'll stick it in a mutual fund, pay off my car, blow it on rice crispy treats.... the holiday mood just hasn't struck me yet. Bring on the snow.

Mac since 7.5
Sadly, I had to waive all rights to birthday, anniversary, and XMas gifts this year in exchange for getting my 15" PowerBook this summer.

Of course, my wife is such a pushover that I'm sure I'll find a way to get:

GTA: SA for PS2
MGS: Snake Eater for PS2
Nintendo DS w/obligitory Mario game
new speakers for my Tundra

i (along with the small percentage of the world who don't already own one) would quite like an iPod or an iPod mini, i'm not really picky. But i won't hold my breath!
