      Currently I have a 6 year old iMac running 9.0 but as soon as Tiger ships I will be getting a G5. Seems there are quite a few of us Mac people here (see Figments OS poll). Even though I have had some issues with this machine, (had to reformat the drive last summer) I would never own anything else... no matter what the price.

      I don't have an Apple bumper sticker on my car but I do have two of the multi colored Apple stickers on my side windows... does that count for the extra points?

        Does 8 Apple stickers on a company van, including two of the largest Apple stickers I've ever seen (really a multi-part stick on) count?

                I think I'll buy the Mini Mac this week as a second computer. My roommate (a Windows freak) bought one this weekend and LOVES it. He may even become a Mac addict like Ian.

                  We have:
                  -Powerbook G4 12 inch, 512 MB RAM and all the fillings (my computer)
                  -20GB iPod 4G (my iPod)
                  -iPod mini silver (my sister's iPod)
                  -iPod socks


                  We may be getting a Mac Mini to replace one of our old Windows computers. We are probably going to wait until the 2G version of it with Tiger.

                      Owned an Apple IIGS, Mac LC, Mac Portable, Performa 600, Duo 210, Quadra 650, Duo 2300c.

                      I got out of it and moved to PC about the time iMac appeared, which was fine as the designs aside from the G4 Cube were looking more and more childish. Recently, a co-worker's Powerbook G4 interested me enough to buy an old G4 PowerMac from the colored plastic days, although this PowerMac is a respectable shade of gray, thank goodness.

                      Overall, the OS is interesting enough, but I don't know the ins and outs of it like I did the old OS, so it's basically an email & MP3 machine. I still maintain a top of the line PC for video work and any other heavy tasks.

                      Those where the days... When men were men, and men's computers were beige.

                          Oh yea, I forgot to mention this:

                          I'm soon gonna be helping to buy 5 Powermacs and 2 iMacs for the school (my video teacher is buying them for our studio next year, and she asked for my help in configing them, because the tech guy at our school can't stand Macs.) Powermacs for Avid and Final Cut Pro, iMacs for Final Cut Express and iMovie.

                          You know your a geek when you get excited over that kind of thing (though I think most of the excitement came from her telling me I'm gonna be producer for the first ever West Ranch TV broadcast later this semester )

                            We own a power mac G4 with what could possibly be the worlds largest monitor (I cannot even lift it- too bad the flat screens cost as much as the tower!) and a 40 gb photo iPod which is the neatest little gadget ever. We are going to look into a mini mac since my husband has been wanting to get an iMac to hook up to his g4, this might be a cheaper (and faster) alternative, and the iPod shuffle. I llok forward to the day when Macs are seen for what they, are, the most stylish, sophistocated, and user friendly computers out there! (Ever notice how in almost every tv show or movie, the computers they use are macs??? its starting.....)

                              G5 Laptop?

                              Does anyone know if or when Apple is coming out with a G5 Laptop? I work with them at my school. I love mac's, except my comp at home is a dell! Disney should use mac's in the parks and resorts because they seem more professional and just look better. I've always been a Windows guy, but since I started using Mac's at my school, primarily 10.3, I wana buy one for college. Hopefully they'll have one out by then.

                                Not soon, well, for an IBM 970 proc in a PowerBook, heat is the main reason. I have heard that they are working on a 64bit G4 with fasterspeeds that might go in the PowerBooks and be called a G5.

                                  Will it have lots of fans like the big G5 you think? My teacher has a dull 2.5ghz one with like 2 gigs in memory and its soo freaking fast! lol Does anyone remember old 10.1??? I was trying to upgrade my tech classes iMacs from like 8.5 and 9.1 to 10.3. Well...I couldnt get the 10.3 to go so i searched through my teachers computer cd book for a mac recovery cd that had 10.1 on it. IT worked on all of the computers, but wow its sooo different! I went onto iTunes, which is probiably the original one. So tomorrow i'll go in an install 10.3. I just wanted to share my Apple experience...lol Ohh, and FYI i'm a tech student at my high school so i do this stuff for a class lol

                                    I'm guessing G5 PB's will be out around WWDC. If not then, sometime between then and MWSF.

                                      According to this article, G5 iBooks will be shipping the second quarter of this year, as are G5 Powerbooks.

                                      Rumor... theory.....??? Time will tell. But checking out all the Apple related rumor and info sites does make for some interesting reading.....

                                        They updated the Mac mini with cheeper RAM, AE, and Bluetooth, as well as a faster Superdrive today.
