Its all good playing about with the various Mac models in the shop. sometimes you even get time by yourself to tinker about before the shop assistant puts their nose in and offers to show you how to work it. However its not usually the same feeling when you actually buy it, take it home and slap it into your life. With luxury hi-end hi-fi equipment, almost all vendors allow you to take the kit home and try it out. I do this often and usually try out a plethora of makes and models before I settle down for something. Now I'd like to spend quality time with the 12", 15", and 17" Powerbooks to see whats ideal to fit into my life. Similarly I'd like to try out the powermacs with my own applications to see wether the performance is worth the cash. Is there some place or somehow to demo or rent a mac? That would be ideal.
