I purchased an ibook g4 recently and now i see that they have a new model. I'm having regrets.
What a horrible title to a thread.
I'd take it personally and sue Stevie.
i think he means bummed in the sense of being annoyed, well i would hope so.
and yes if i bought an ibook last month i would probably be annoyed, especially if he knew about the probability of macbooks coming soon.however, if he needed a laptop then then he was right to buy it.
Yes....... haha, hehe
Sorry but you asked for it. I'll still serve you well
Nothing too unusual for that reaction to have set in. However, if your iBook is performing smoothly and satisfying the needs that made you buy a computer in the first place, then you should be quite content and enjoy it. Owners of that G4 laptop consistently speak highly of it. Don't let technology purchases put you in a deep funk.
Did you pay with a credit card?
How did you pay? Some credit cards have purchase protection such as American Express and it normally lasts 3 months so you may be covered if you paid in that way.
I'd only be bummed if I paid full price. Did you? Other than that, they still are great machines and smaller than any Apple will every produce. So, you got something plus you have no Rev A macbook problems.
Credit card companies cover buyer's remorse? Sign me up!!!
I would be quite annoyed, just because the Macbooks perform a lot better and the cost of them is not much more. It also looks so much better.
Yes, I would be extremely bummed. ...There. Do you feel any better?
Really, you've got a perfectly good machine. Just be happy and enjoy it, because quite frankly, you can't do much about it.
Really, I agree with the above. Yes, bummed, but com'on. You got a really nice machine which could easily satisfy your needs. I bought a 14" iBook last November and still hasn't regretted it. Yes the MacBook Pros and MacBooks are bitchin', but everything is still Rosetta, whining, mooing, heating/cooking issues are imminent as well as bad backlight bleeding on some of the 17": No, these laptops are not "finished" yet in my opinion, they're still on the beta table.
If everything goes well in a couple of months, you could always save up for a fully functional MBP for home use and use the iBook as a great transportable and very capable notebook.
I know I am gonna buy a 17" for the screen space (I am fed up with only having one document at the front at a time and exposéing all the time) and use my 14" as a transportable studying computer. I love the mac laptop line (keyboards and touchpads are soooooo nice) and wouldn't get a desktop until old age anyway.
Be happy with your new discontinued iBook and use it well. Just be happy about not having any problems yet
Could it not develop a fault Have to be replaced.
When they ship a replacement you simply dont open the box and ring apple and tell them you want a refund. They should accept it back, refund you and you can order a macbook....
I know it's cheeky - but I managed to get rid of my liney Rev E powerbook for an iMac core duo by doing that..... Apple refused to do anything about the screen even though it was faulty, but when I complained about battery they replaced it?
It's worth a go. Tell them the battery is fine one minute, then its shutting down and such.... They'll think it's a logic board failure...
he could sell it...
That it is.
***also makes note to self***
It will never work. ...Ever
If it did work for MacRumorUser, he got extremely lucky.
I bought a 14 inch iBook a few months ago and am extremely happy with it. While the new MacBooks do look nice, I feel no remorse for not waiting longer. It's still an extremely awesome laptop that does exactly what I need (web surfing, listening to music, GIMPshop, minor iMovie video editing, etc.).
i'd snap, lose it. Find steve jobs and head fake him with your ibook (the sucker will go for it), then give him a flurry of jabs to the solarplex and finish with a snap kick to the groin.
Then he'd call ya the Champ.
Yes, I think you should become a bum, if you aren't already one.
Of course becoming a homeless wino would probably be a worthy future goal.
I actually think I preferred the look of the old one... S'your call, are you bummed? If you are, how bummed?
Nearly fell off my chair
I love my ibook and won't replace it until it simply won't run anymore. I did that with a G3 ibook as well. They're great machines, just bump up the RAM as far as it will go and you're set.
i've been very pleased with my five month old 12 inch iBook.
Are you channeling the ibook through your macrumors user id?
