    Ohhh...I'd want one, but I really like my 19" monitor too much....though I'd like a 21" more.

    I'd love a new G4 and an iPod too, but my B&WG3's gonna have to hold me for a little while longer...

      The new iMac is a screamin' deal. Especially the top of the line with the superdrive. I'd love to have one for the styling alone. As for monitors, I love the 22" Cinema Display hooked up to my dual 500 G4.

        Very sweet system, Parsons!

        Being able to burn your own DVD's on an iMac that is only $1799 is amazing!

        Are you guys using OSX?

        BTW, I have an iBook Combo DVD/CD-RW with an upgraded 30GB hard drive and Airport wireless internet connection (OSX as my default). I particularly like the portability that the small size affords me.

          I'm not running OSX full time yet but I probably will be within a few weeks. I'm looking forward to moving over (need that new OSX-friendly Photoshop to ship!) to all the new software because the second of the two processors in my G4 is "asleep" while running system 9 - that's not to say it's slow under 9, it's fast but it flat screams when I'm running 10! The new Final Cut Pro is great, btw. All in all I like 10 but it's just enough different that I'm not completely in the comfort zone yet.

          Yeah, I love the Cinema display. I was one of those that bought it when they were 4K. Then they were 3500 and now they're 2500. Still, it's one of the best investments I ever made.

          I think the new generation iBooks are the absolute deal of the century and the new 14" is a bargain and a half. I gave my wife a special edition graphite iBook a year ago and she loves it but I wouldn't mind replacing it with a new 14". The kids fight over their ("old style") iMac all the time and are both claiming dibs on my G3 (black) powerbook as soon as my Titanium G4 arrives.

            I set up OS 10.1.2 on my son's iMac. Works great with two caveats: I bumped his ram to 512mb, and installed X and 9 on separate partitions. The result is crash-free computing...very nice.

              I wish I knew how to make this little smiley guy green...to represent my envy.

              Nope...sticking with 9.1. I figure I will until I upgrade machines. None of my aps (`cept Photoshop 6) would really take advantage of OSX, so I'm waiting.

              Either of you use Illustartor 10 yet? I have 9, but find myself using 8 most of the time anyway because it's faster (for me, anyway). I jump to 9 when I need it's gizmos...like transparency.

                Gee, what is that like?

                I keep thinking about getting a Mac for my next computer.

                Of course I need to find the Mac version of Indy Car Racing II if I am going to do that!

                  It looks like an igloo with a solar panel mounted on top.

                    I think that Mac's are attractive and very powerful PC's, but until they can run Microsft OS, they will trail significantly in the marketplace. Maybe I'm just a product of the Microsoft era, but I know too much about how Windows operates to up and change now. I don't think I'm alone.

                      They can run Windows. Get a piece of software called Virtual PC and you can run Windows and all the PC aps you want. I use it now and then.

                      Not wanting this thread to deteriorate into a Windows v. Mac tirade but ... I always thought of Windows (which was copied after the Mac interface) being like the result you'd get when translating a great novel by Hemingway from English to French, from French to Italian, from Italian to German, and from German back to English.

                        Apple went for both the hardware & software markets - and botched it.

                        To bring it back to racing, as time goes on, Apple = CART, IRL = Microsoft.

                        Actually, CART & IRL are Unix & Linux, and NASCAR is Microsoft...

                            Like many others, I use PCs at the office and Macs at home. They're both cool, although I feel more like a 'master of my own domain' on the Mac side.

                              That is a really cool looking design. The first thing that popped into my mind is that it looks like my cat could knock it over....Just how stable is that unit?
