Hello all, I'm switching!!! I've unwittingly cried wolf on this forum, as I planned to do this in July then again in late August, but I'm finally actually going to do this. PB 12, 1.25 GB RAM (non apple) combo + LaCie dvd burner My questions are as follows: 1) how necessary are these plastic films people seem to buy to place on the monitor and keyboard? I'd rather not use them if the option is reasonable. 2) what games from the following list will operate fluidly on this computer? (I realize the mac is not a great gaming platform; It is the only platform I care to use at this stage, and if you think mac gaming is in a tough spot, try Linux gaming post-Loki) Space Colony Europa Universalis 2 Homeworld 2 Worms 3D Republic: The Revolution Warcraft III SimCity 4 Freeverse : Robin Hood The Sims (and all the offshoots) 3) Crucial vs OWC Samsung vs OWC generic for RAM? 4) Anyone know anything about the CEO Milano Leather Brief? It looks quite nice, and is my current selection for a case/bag. 5) I realize that a PB refresh will be soon, but I absolutely need a computer ASAP. I can wait until next week if any of you think that Oct 19th is a relevant date (as I have heard mentioned). 6) what BT 2 button w/ scroll mouse would you suggest? theMouse BT has been released, but the owner of the company is frightening, and the reviews have been so-so... 7) with the 60GB color iPod on the horizon, I thought I would go w/ an iPod mini. Thoughts/suggestions for accessories? iTrip mini, PowerPod from Griffin and a case from Vaja (I like leather!) are already preselected.
