I'm getting AN Apple Powerbook G4!!! Thought I'd share...

Well...

School is coming around the corner, and I'm majoring in Graphics Design @ VCU, and their requirements recommend getting a macintosh. Well I'm getting a brand new Apple Powerbook G4 15" laptop. It has 1.67Ghz, 128mb video card, 1gb ram, and a wireless mouse!!! Ahhhh I can't wait til i press that order button!!!! It's going to be awesome! Anyone have a powerbook and like to tell me what you think about it?

Oh...The best part of all of it.

MOM AND DAD ARE GETTING ME IT!

Congrats on the new laptop youll love it I almost bought one this year, but decided to stick with my Dell 6000D instead (Of course give it a year or so and Ill be able to dual boot the Intel based laptop with Max OSX )

I would only want a Mac if I already had a Windows machine. It's just too expensive to but Microsoft stuff for a Mac, because most of the world uses Word and Excel and junk. However, the simplicity of the UI on a Mac is unsurpassed, and they're just aesthetically pleasing all around.

good choice in computers
mines old so its not going to be as blazing fast as yours but after around 6 years it still works perfectly.
