So yesterday I am down at the apple store looking around, and the place is packed. Good for Apple...lots of people buying things, etc. <br><br>So in walks this father and his 18-year-old daughter, who is going to be heading to college. She came for an iPod, then she started complaining about her Windows PC. <br><br>"Daddy, I don't like my computer, I think one of these would be better."<br><br>So what did "Daddy" buy his obviously computer novice daughter?<br><br>An eMac?<br><br>An iBook?<br><br>Why of course not, he bought her a dual 2ghz G5 with the 23" display! I am sitting there thinking...that machine will be used for surfing and e-mail, and that's all. <br><br>That's like buying somebody who just got their learner's permit a Ferrari to learn how to drive in...<br>
I knew a guy in university like that. His dad bought him a Quadra 840AV (then top of the line) filled with RAM and a 21" Sony Trinitron monitor, MS Office, etc. <br><br>He flunked out before the end of the year. No wonder, he only used the computer to play F/A-18 Hornet.<br><br><br><br>
