Okay, I'll admit it. I need a new computer. Right now I have a 3 year old Fujitsu laptop. Nothing fancy. Pentium III. Windows 2000. Enough space for my pics and music. A few games. It's been sufficient until now, when I find myself waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting for stuff to load. It's starting to get on my nerves big time. No, I'm not a nerd, and I'm not a power-user, but I think I get more use out of my PC than the average person. I'd absolutely drop dead without the internet. The computer has already been formatted twice. This has not helped the speed. The only games I have on my computer are The Sims and Ragnarok. Earlier in the month, I had to install Ad Aware and some Virus Software and something happened with the way cd-rom drives runs games and now The Sims won't even run, so now that's gone as well. I live with two comp-sci grads and they couldn't fix it. (they should be ashamed) So. I need a new computer. My boyfriend and my roommate both have PB G4's and they swear by them. After using them occassionally, I found myself downloading iTunes for my music, and Picasa for my pictures; like I'm trying to trick my laptop into thinking it's a mac by download mac or mac-like programs. I don't think I want a PB, but an iBook would be awesome. With my educational discount, it's about 899.00 for the 12". I know mac are awesome quality, which is why they're more expensive. I'm just on the fence on if I should bother getting another laptop. I don't really take this one anywhere other than to the living room, and that's only once in a great while. I don't want to sacrifice more power/less money for portability I don't really use. I still plan on keeping my windows laptop around for the few games I do play until it gets too slow to do so. Thoughts?
