well, I guess this isnt really a question, its more of a statement. Im going to college next year and I have oodles of money saved up. I want to head into mac because I am sick of windows. I am totally in awe of the 17" powerbook. Everytime I see it, I want it even more. I was discussing this with my dad and he laughed when I said thats what I wanted. He said it was way too big and that I needed something I could take to class because I would end up wanting to. I also like to play some cs but could give it up for the 17" powerbook, and if it wasnt for my dad I probally would have already. I was thinking of maybee getting a dell with a new dell moniter and plugging something like a 12" pb into it, but eventhough that sounds like a good setup and one that would probally suit me better, I just cant let go of the 17" powerbook. Its sooo perfect and so clean. I guess I feel that if I got the 17" pb Id always kick myself saying I should have gone the other way. The 17" just seems so different and so cool. You comments?
