LordMontague Thinking Outside …


To take the Apple or not? That is the question!

For the past 2-3 weeks I have had the pleasure to work with a PowerBook G4 that was given to the contact at the client I'm working for. In fact, right now I'm writing this post on the laptop! I'm debating if I should go with a PC or Mac when I buy a new laptop for me. I was originally looking at buying an Alienware laptop because of the power and what I would be doing with the laptop. Now, I'm REALLY hooked on Macs! I'm loving the current OS, the way the system preforms and the fact that the OS is based on Unix. Since I have started using the system, I have not had a single crash or frozen screen.

I took a look at apple.com and found the new version of the Mac laptop, the MacBook and MacBook Pro. If I were to get a Mac system, I'd go with a MacBook Pro 17" system. The power behind the system before I even customize it is just amazing! The 17" model has this as the default system setup:

* 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
* 1680 x 1050 pixels
* 2GB memory
* 160GB hard drive
* 8x double-layer SuperDrive
* ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics with 256MB SDRAM

WOW, what a setup! I'll just have to wait and see how I feel a little later on after working with this PowerBook G4 for a while more. I've been able to get just about every piece of software that I need in a Mac version and have found new software out there that is for the Mac to do the same thing that software on the PC does. I'll post an update later on as to what step I take ...

  1. I honestly think you should go with a mac. Much more sleek than other pc’s and just as powerful (or so it seems) as the alienware you originially intended on getting. We’ve had alot of fun playing with the one you have now, the keyboard lights up which is neat, you close an open window on the LEFT side of the box, etc. And of course if need be you said it can still run windows if you needed to. Besides you need a new computer because I’m typing on yours right now with cheese from the cheese pringles im eating all over my fingers, and nobody likes a cheesy keyboard.

  2. Apple, is awesome :) very wonderful, but Linux very very wonderful :D

  3. I have been an apple user for years and have a powerbook g4 and these machines just work. switched my wife to apple too and she has not regretted the change at all.
