What flew up YOUR shorts? Apple's pattern has a discount preceding Rev in every previous case. If you just bought an entry level Mac not 2 months before Macworld yer a sucker. If you were ignorant and only recently discovered the release, get over it.
I'm not agree with you, well, i dont understand why are you saying "****er" about it. For myself, the ibook is very cool... some of my friend told about the small size of the screen, but when comes the time you work on it, it's not that bad. By the way, do you know when it gonna be release, and do u have some specification about it ??? i want to know more about that !
There will be larger screen ibooks in the future (march maybe). The order was for 15" I believe, not suitable for ibook because it would be roughly the same size as the powerbook! IF the ibooks screen is increased it will be a 13.1 or 13.7" screen no bigger.
Have to disagree with you on this one Jef. I think Apple did a fantastic job with their mulit-color approach back in 98, but thats where it should stay.
Apple has a much more sophisticated, semi-professional look now with the midtone greys, whites and silvers--much like the auto industry has. (Remember the lime green Mustang? Im glad most higher end cars are now black, white, silver, and gold) I think they would be taking a step back in time to re-use their old color scheme. Its not innovative.
Wonder what Apple's next design move will be in their G5 model? (whenever it comes out) Im predicting the first-ever glossy black Apple tower. Kinda like the Pismo's, but glossy.
i had to gas up ten minutes ago and i saw a purple/maroonish mustang, was that stock?
if the g5 were butt ugly, i think most professonals would not care too much anyway since the darn thing is always under a messy desk somewhere and the graphics pro is more interested in meeting the deadline
plus most of them have an ugly beige sony monitor on their desk because of the crt's still superior color critical precision
who ever thought of beige mini-towers, and why did that color catch on?
...not to mention, why are the pc makers still using that shade of beige still? at least sony and hp try something new with purple and grey and that is better than compaq 5000 series and their beige...yet it's still the pc world's number one selling and top rated computer box
Maroon Mustang? Yeah, I think that was stock. I know they had a bunch of goofy colors 3-4 years back. I dont know for sure though.
> plus most of them have an ugly beige sony monitor on their desk because of the crt's still superior color critical precision
extremely true. No LCD's can color synch with good precision.
Wasnt the Apple the first beige-colored PC? I think the average boring consumer feels 'comfortable' with beige. If it aint a boring gray box, then it is just a toy. it doesnt work 'hard' unless its boring.
I like the Blue SGI's and the Black IBMs. They look nice. Still, nothing has topped the Apple. COmpaq has tried, but nothing matches the simplicity and design of the high-end Apple.
