I hear everyone saying buy buy, don't worry buy. I bought a new 12 powebook last month and i love it. I really do. But with this announcement i am pissed. I remember when everything switched to powermac so i had to get rid of my LC II to get a new $5000 8500 powermac machine. Not to say it was a def. upgrade but the 8500 needed all new software and upgrades and it only lasted 3 years until the G3 came out and made my computer completely obsolete. Now i spent about $2000 on a Powerbook that when the intel versions come out next year will be semi obsolete, because I'm sure their will be a new OS that will require an Intel processor and all the latests and greatest software will have to require this new OS. So what am i left with. Another obsolete machine. Trust me i hate windows, but my old HP laptop that i bought in 98 still runs strong today (even though i hate it and it crashes and i constatly have to take it for repair). But lets be honest here, buy buying new macs now we are just giving into Apple's greedy new plan. These machines run great now, but do we really not care that in 3 years time these machines will be dead weights. I want my machine to last a good 10 years before its garbage.
