LOL. I think you need to add the aluminum foil all the way down the street to the nearest transformer.<br>Your following my first rule of buying a computer. Don't buy it until the day before you are dying to have it. <br>I have a lab that needs a lot of Macs so I get the luxury of buying the newest model or two every July. There are about 30 Macs in the lab right now old and new just doing fine.<br>The longer you hold out, the longer you go without getting the feeling, "sheesh, if I just waited two more weeks I could have had twice as fast for 1/3 the cost".<br><br><br>Paul Morrison ... Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it. -Mark Twain
Gee I wish our labs were (a) Macs and (b) upgraded every year. Instead, we have very slow Windows labs (except for the digital media lab, which is all new G4s, but dedicated) and the rest of us get the even older hand-me-downs. Fortunately one of those hand-me-downs is the de-accessioned G3 B&W that sits in my office.<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

I got my first Mac, a G4 400 and Studio Display 17 at the end of September 2000. Guess I will buy a new Power Mac when I can afford it.<br><br>But have been wanting to add a notebook, either a Pismo or an iBook, so I can use the G4 strictly for work, and use the notebook for all leisure activities while lying on the sofa (need Airport for that, hmm...).<br><br>--<br>I am dangerous. I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile. Your a$$ will be laminated.
I met someone a few days ago that upgrades every time Apple releases a new "Fastest" model. Right now, he has 8 Towers at his house that are up and running, and 4 more out in the garage. Funny thing is, he lives like a pauper... he "says" he is a computer consultant & multi-media artist, but I just can't imagine there is THAT much Mac consulting work to be found. Of course, multimedia can bring in huge dollars in a relatively short amount of time.<br><br>And people think I'm nuts for upgrading every year & a half.<br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

OSX Addict,<br>You should really know that not only the OS is an addiction but with the purchase of these brand new Macs it is just the same.<br>... We are really in a luxury position, with all this great hard and software available every day.<br><br>
Oh yeah..I fully realize that the hardware is addicting too!! But I have seen too many Macaddict people out there that I thought I would use OSX Addict <br><br>Plus I really am addicted to OSX..I love it..ok, well, not love, but a strong liking for it <br><br>
