    That not in my budget either. Still working on getting the 2004 Mustang Conv.

    That is a nice looking Mustang. I don't usually like Mustangs, but that hood looks pretty slick.

    I wish they would drop the price of the duals some more. They dropped the price of the low-end which was 867 Mhz and bumped it to 1 Ghz, but I want something that is faster than that. My iMac is great as far speediness. The only time I get the beach ball is when an app totally bombs my system. By the way, I've had to reboot 3 times this past week ( with the power button ) due to an ap I was running with the Apple X11 implementation. I want something that is a little faster. I guess $2000 isn't bad for a 1.25 Ghz, but these machines should all come standard with 128 meg video cards. These are Apples show pieces, and they are still way over priced and under maximized as far as hardware.

    Not to be anti-mac, but for $1500 I could build one screeming machine based on x86 and run a kick as linux workstation. This isn't an excuse I know, because most of the Apple feel is the OS, but I think they should start competing with the other side. People are biased towards the Mhz myth, and Apple has no excuse to not be able to produce something equally as fast as a P4. I know Apple doesn't actually make the chips, but they make the deals with the people that do make the chips.

    Just my rant. I am STILL by all means a switcher, and I very rarely use my Win2K machine now, I just think Apple needs to step up to the plate with stuff that people can actually afford, and use. I like the 17" PowerBooks, but in reality who really needs one of those?

    If Apple wants to increase their customer base. They really need to increase the performance and reduce the cost of the hardware. I have been using Apple products since the Apple ][ plus days. I really believe Apple builts a quality product. I hope that when the 64 bits chip comes available that Aplle jumps on it in a BIG way, but don't over charge for it. You are right about the amount of default memory. They should default the video memory at about 128, and RAM at about 512.

    That is just my nickels worth.

    i think Apple should make a windows type app like x11. unlike Virtual PC which takes up all your memory, the Apple version would only run the apps or .exe's . If the personal computer war is anything like the game of Risk, then Apple needs to strike at them on their own turf

    Today I went to the NZ Apple update, its like Macworld for NZ. They had the new 20" LCD screen there, apparently its the only one in the country at the moment, very nice indeed and good price too. Prices here just went down. I still drooled the most over the 23" LCD screen. They also had 12" powerbooks there too, nice and light, doesnt seem to run as hot as its been reported to do. Basically I left there frustrated cause I cant afford anything at the moment. But I got 2 free pens and a T-shirt
