You know I have been holding off for a long time on getting a new Mac, always hoping for the introduction of the G5 or whatever was going to succeed the G4. Of course now there is that talk about the 64 bit IBM next year, maybe.....but though those would be even more awesome than what I just bought, this has enough performance to last me for a long time I think. Just do it, you'll be glad you did and the low end G4 is not all that expensive considering what you get. I could have spent more, I could have gone all the way to the top end model, but when it comes to spending money on stuff like this, I always tend to stay somewhat economical even though I could afford the best. But, you know how it goes, you add RAM, pick up some games, an iPod, speakers, etc. and you have spent a lot of money.<br><br>
-- you are aware that this is like saying,"Picked up a Toyota MR2 Spyder yesterday, added the plus package of options. Man, this thing is so great compared to my mainstay, the Toyota Celica. Got a $500 off too, so hard to find a better deal than that. Now I really fly!"<br><br>Well, of course you do, you just bought a new, better 'car' at twice the price. I hope it improved!<br><br>:-P<br><br><br>
I had some serious damage done to my house due to a bonehead roofer...long story short...I had a large amount of water come in my house. Most of it settled in my basement where all of my old computer stuff was. All of it was ruined. I had the old LC III, three Laserwriter II (replaced by 3 HP 2200s) 13/14" monitors etc. All was replaced via insurance. It was not worth the hassle but at least I did get something out of it.<br><br>
