Well, I am posting this on my new iBook. I finally made the decision to simplify my computer life and finalize on one computer. So after much research I decided on getting this. As far as the hardware goes, it can not be beat by any other company out there. The screen rocks, and the detail that apple put into the iBook is amazing. The titanium was interesting, but I ultimately decided on this because it offered almost the same performance at a lower cost and it is more portable. So far I have a few things happen inside of Mac Os X that shouldn't have happened, but they are small. Hopefully the update will help. By the way this is my first mac. I will change it to be dual booting with linuxppc, but I don't want to do anything until I get the update to os x, since I want dvd support in os x before I get rid of os 9. So eventually I will have a day or two of struggle getting linuxppc working ;) Anyway I am impressed with the software since it is the power of unix with the user functionality of apple. Dang, it is 2 am and my neighbors have friends over creating a lot of noise. I hate noise. (Which is another reason for the apple since they are quiet as a mouse, while the sony vio sounds like a jet taking off).
