    I finally did it...
    I know this doesn't mean anything to anybody else, but I've spent months stewing and waffling over which notebook to buy; at one point I was almost ready to plunk down some major cash for the beastly Sager 9860!! Finally, today, having never owned a Mac in my life, I took the plunge and ordered a 12" iBook (256 Mb, Bluetooth, 80 GB HDD, Applecare). I can officially be counted among the ranks of the switchers, although only time will tell whether I'm happy with that switch or not . I'm going to try to post an objective evaluation of the Wintel to Mac switch after I've had a chance to get used to OSX.

    In the meantime, please pray to the dead pixel gods for me .

    Congrats on the purchase. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the ease of switching. I just switched from the PC world over to the Mac world 6 months ago and have a iMac and a PowerBook (no dead pixels on either) and couldn't be happier.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    Niice! I only have one comment though...Before you make your evaulation, make sure that upgrade the iBooks Ram...Modern operating systems realllllly love ram..and, it will REALLLLY speed up the computer..Unless you've only used a PC with 256 MB of Ram, comparing the PC(with higher ram amts.) to the Mac (with 256) would most certainly not be objective!
