    went to this new electronic store next to 109, they had campaign as they always do in japan.
    when i was about to leave they announced 25% points over the PA for the next 30min on all items on 3F, so i went back confirmed what i heard, and swiped my card, you get 3man off if you sign up to emobile net, with a special 1000-4000en charge, 使え放題 plan, the original plan is 1000-5000en. on a 1 year contract. (normally 2y contract)

    so 180,000 - 30,000(em) - 45,000 (points) + 12,000(em) (1 year contract i gotta pay or the net which i wont use since i got fiber optic connection at home.

    works out to 122,000en (US$1300). my mate is going to buy a new TV, and said he'll give me 45,000en for his TV, so i get cash for that.


    BOOOM. all about being there at the right time. i was going to buy this next sat. ahh wlel, 1week earlier, BIG SAVINGS.


    so what can my mac do?. i think i need vista on it.

    edit: shop is called LABI.

    I want to know as well.
    Also, I guess if you have small hands the small spacebar doesn't matter much, but boy I would be pressing whatever those mystery keys are often.

    BTW OP, we are asking questions ... you're just not answering.
    What can your MB do? I presume it can do exactly what everyone else's can do. Aside from tell us what those two mystery buttons are!
    ;)

    had a g4 before, was pretty much most useless machine ever because of osx. only used it for final cut pro.

    reason i buy this new amcbook, to run final cut, and windows. best of both worlds. but ye its been years since i touched osx. and im sure there are more programs that support osx these days. well i hope so.

    The one on the left is a modifier key. The one on the right is to summon Godzilla. Just imagine if they had a MB in Cloverfield???? :D

    I wonder if that wee little Japanese spacebar makes as much manly noise as our He-Man U.S. spacebar?:D

    I want one so I too can summon Godzilla - or Gamera, that flying turtles with jets was way cool.;)

    Macs do crash, just less often than Windows computers. Option + Command + Escape is the Mac version of Ctrl alt del.
