I'm sure this story has been told over and over, but here's why I am switching to a Mac. I've spent the last 2 years sitting next to my husband as we tinker with our laptops side by side. I can't count the number of times mine has made me so mad I really did want to throw it. My husband has really no problems with his G4. He even dropped it in a full bathtub and it survived with no problems. The HP weighed 9 lbs. I don't care what the reviews of my model say, because they grossly lied in the true weight of the product. The reviews say 7.7 lbs but I weighed the damn thing on several scales. Anyway, it broke physically 5 times. I kept sending it back and back until the warranty ran out. It has been the same problem every time. This time it broke I refuse to put any extra money into fixing it. I'm buying a Mac. I'll be going from a 9 lb 15.4 inch HP to a tiny, slim, aesthetically pleasing MacbookPro. The art geek in me wouldn't have it any other way. It has been absolute HELL waiting for it to come though. Shanghai, to Anchorage, to Indianapolis, to Oakland, and in 2 more days, Modesto? Some great 2 day shipping. This is worse than waiting for Christmas. Oh.. and THE best part. My friend just got a 17 inch HP with Vista on it and I was begging her not to. Pleading! Crying! Don't do it!! She calls me today and says 'guess what...Vista crashed, bad. I had to do a full reinstall and was literally teaching the HP support guy about what to do for the next person who had this problem'. She said that the help desk has been literally overrun with crashed Vista systems and it is taking 4+ hours per laptop to even figure out what is causing the crashes, let alone the fix. Thank god I nearly dodged the bullet on that one!
