Even fewer reasons not to own a Mac


Damn you, Apple! Now must readjust budget again: As one of many Mac fans that don't actually own a Mac (though I did between 1984 and 1997), I'm stoked to see falling prices and new and exciting features. Like the 'Sudden Motion Sensor'. If I had a Powerbook, I could walk and surf, commute and compute, without fear of losing any data were I to be as careless as to drop the Powerbook.
iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: I've Got You Under My Skin - Diana Krall - When I Look In Your Eyes, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

Damn you, Apple indeed. I was just at Wheelock yesterday trying to figure out the potential damage should I cave in...

I like the fact that the new Powerbooks support 2-finger action.

Ok, that came out wrong.

Bah! IBM had that feature ages ago. And the Thinkpad can withstand a waist-high drop because I tried that before :)

So what if it's black and fugly :D?

MB: yeah, trackpad scrolling gets my vote too
bubblemunche: if i'm not wrong, the IBM thinkpads were designed by some famous designer when they first came out, unfortunately they never changed. Haha, actually i quite like the ultraslim series of IBM.
