A word of encouragement to all you lurkers out there: I just loaned my Powerbook to my girlfriend whose Dell just called it quits. She was hesitant to ask for it because she didn’t feel like having to go through all the setup and configuration; but, as Mac owners are well aware - owning an Apple computer is pure joy. And I quote, "Wait! What just happened?! I just plugged it in and...it WORKED! How did it do that??" That's a Mac for ya. So if you’re thinking about a purchase, go for it - You wont regret it!
