    @chach: You still have an iBook? I don't have anything too special, but I at least have an Intel.

    I just have the 1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini with a few upgrades, but as soon as Leopard comes out I'm getting a maxed out MacBook Pro.

    Ya I have used PCs all my life too, but then I got a Mac, and wondered why the **** I didn't get one earlier. They aren't that expensive for what you get either. Apple just doesn't make low end computers, which is why they seem expensive. Though I do wish I could build my own Mac.

    So while we are on the subject, what browsers do all you Mac users use? I have always used Safari and I love it, but just recently it has became really slow, I can't figure out why, I have tried everything I can think of. Finally I got pissed off and started looking for a new browser. I tried FireFox since thats what I use in Windows and Linux, but I just didn't like it in OS X. I'm using Camino right now, and I generally like it, though I still prefer Safari and there are a few things about it that drive me mad. One thing is no reload all tabs button, which I use all the time.

    well no, an equally configured PC would cost 3 times less than a Mac and can do 100 x more than one as well. Im not saying macs are bad, but they are expensive and what you get is only a fraction of what the PC is capable of. Just the facts.

    It wouldn't cost three times less for a pre configured PC. If you built one, then it might. They can't do a hundred times more either. Macs can do almost anything a PC can with the exception of gaming. Yes what you get on a Mac is only a fraction of what you get with a PC, of course I'm assuming you are referring to viruses.

    got imac g4, powerbook and imac intel 17"

    they are not really expensive... compare the core 2 duo of sony or fujitsu or hp, you'll see the price of macbook is just right.

    re softwares... there are alot of good softwares for mac.
    re os... vista is just starting what osx has been doing for 3 to 4yrs now.
    and yes, there aren't much virus floating around.

    I like Linux and Mac almost equally. I have just had a few bad experiences with Linux, which is why I slightly prefer OS X.

    understandable since Linux is kinda hard to get your head around at first.
