    1. I don't really notice Backup so I guess that's a sign of a good backup app. I've used it to restore a few machines and it has been fine. No problems to report.
    2. My favourite .mac feature is the ability to sync machine settings and data across the 'net. Specifically, I like the fact all my Macs have the same iCal and Address Book data.
    3. It will be roughly 35-42% better on Leopard.

    Really? You are way more in the know than me. I heard 23.5-31.856% better.

    Remember that it'll make Safari seem a little snappier too. Have you accounted for that?

    That's crazy talk. It'll be five percent. Period. Six in Europe.
