In honor of Apple moving over to the dark side (finally)  

Of course, I'm just kidding. I really don't care. Each OS has its strengths. I just like to give the Apple cult a bit of a hard time because so many of my Apple toting friends are such "WinDOwS SUcKS AppLE RuLEZ" fanboys, I just can't help getting them all worked up. Then they can go relieve some of that stress by playing a rousing game of... oh, maybe Tetris or Solitaire. I'M KIDDING! I'M KIDDING!

Srsly, I'm happy to see Apple doing well (I do like that stock). And I'm happy to see them using Intel chips. Now, if they'll just add some more buttons to their frackin mice, I might actually consider buying one. I'm a button whore. My Thinkpad has 5 buttons, plus a touchpoint pointer, plus a touchpad that I can configure to do my bidding depending on where I press. I like that I could probably run a nuclear power plant, rip mp3s, find porn, and read LJ all without lifting my finger off the pointer.

Apropos of nothing....

I totally ganked this from randomimages the other day bcuz it made me LOL.

It's funny 'cuz it's true.

This usually gives Apple fanboys collective apoplexy.
"Sony has been on the forefront of design in the PC world although we don't always see it here in the US because of different market trends. Although most people think Apple is the leader in innovation when it comes to notebooks, they are nowhere close to the Japanese when it comes to miniaturizing things." - SiliconPopCulture.Com.

Ok. Substitute "Sony" with "any Japanese or Korean electronics manufacturer."

Am I evil incarnate for wanting to install Linux on a powerbook? It's just, they're built quite well despite being mildly overpriced, so I wanna see what they could do with a lean-and-mean OS under the hood...

Please don't shoot me!

People ask if I'm on myspace.com, I tell them yeah but I don't really have the time to check it because it would cut into my Livejournal.

I'm (first) laptop shopping, and seriously considering an iBook (also would be my first Mac).

I should be convinced otherwise?

they're good machines. you just have to be prepared for some software not being available, or only older versions being available, websites not supporting your system, etc.

Personally, I can't go mac only. I have online tools at my job I need that will only run on a Windows machine. If you have convenient access to a Windows machine, you should be fine. Just know what to expect. It's like when I use Firefox. I prefer it, but I'm not going to get overly upset when a site doesn't support it. I understand I'm in a much smaller minority and businesses aren't as incentivized to spend money supporting my particular browser habits.

If you are going Mac though, I would definitely get an Intel based machine. There will be less software working on it at first, but it's the direction in which Apple is moving. Macs are too pricey to have to replace in a year!

You had me until "incentivized."

There's nothing special about the (windows) programs I use at work, so no worries there. I'd mainly use it for internetting and as an in-flight DVD player. And for looking cool.
