I just ordered the beast...mac pro!!! I have been using a Powerbook G3 Lombard since August '99 (still going strong). The last desktop was a Centris 650 back in '92. I switched to PCs so my son could play games. We got into building some but he moved on. I am so frustrated with the dark side. I finally made the full leap back into the light!
