I always knew they were superior, but I still can't figure out one button on the mouse. DefI don't use the Mac mouse, I have a 2 button wheel mouse on a Wacom Tablet that I use with my PowerBook G4 laptop. I'm going to wait until next month when the new mac Operating System is release.My PowerBook 15" G4 cost me $1600 2 years ago with 2MB RAM ( Apple lets government employees / teachers/ students / etc buy direct at a pretty good discount - and $1500 price included a full copy of M/S Office with a PC Emulator from M/S ) and the MAC has a 3 year bumper to bumper warranty ( which can be transferred to a new owner ) and a current resale value is around $1200 for my used laptop.A new 20" iMac with 2GB memory, 350GB hard drive and another 3 year warranty is only $1600 from Macconnection. free shipping and no sales tax. I'll probably wait until October and the new O/S will be available and loaded with iLife 08 ( another savings of $200 ). It sure is nice not having to mess with drivers to load your hardware, and the 800 firewire connector is perfect for external HD backups. The addition of iWork ( Office clone ) now with a spreadsheet for $75 is another bargain.The big bonus is the jump Apple stock has taken over the last 18 months!PC Magazine just gave the iMac 20" an Editors Choice and said it runs Vista better than some PC's... for those that want a dual boot system.I guess I'll just have to wait and see one at the Apple Store when I go to Atlanta this coming week.
Stupid question... can I network a Mac with my Windows machines? Def
I have a wireless modem so I don;t think connecting is a big problem if I were to get a Mac... I am more concerned about file transfers- photos, videos, text files etc.I share those among all the computers and my PPC constantly because what I need is never on the computer I am working on!Def
