I don't know how many times I am going to have to say this. People usually come to message boards to solve problems and vent about frustrations with problems. Most people who have an apple have no problems and see no need to go post on a message board to say everything is working, thus making the number of threads of ibooks dieing more frequent then those praising the ibook

g3 ibooks were great, any mac, if well maintained(by which I mean not dropping it, lending it out to people who use only pc, and repairing permissions and running cron scripts every now and then) and taken care of should last very long. besides, if you have any problems, come back.

I just thought more people come to this forum to "praise" their macs like said above.

This is completely off the subject and you know so much more about Macs then me but I was reading somewhere that your computer (Powermac G4 Cube) was a flop and not a big seller..is this true?

Too expensive at the time for not enough

it is agreat computer though, just didnt sell enough, partly because it had no built in cooling,
but it is one of a kind in the mac world. until the mac mini, though its still better, cause its more upgradeable, up to 4 or 6 or so gigs of ram I think. Ive got 832 now, thats the original 64, another 256 and a 512, and still I have 3 empty slots.

I was wondering that myself also. I think that Apple will be stepping it up pretty soon with the commercials. There asking switchers to sumbit their story to the website, so I am thinking; we'll be seeing something pretty soon.

I think apple is selling plenty of computers now. I just picked up an iBook 1.2Ghz 12". My 2nd mac, first was a 12" g3/900.

In looking, I kept finding that most places stay sold out of powerbooks. Components that are mac-compatible tend to stay sold out too - take a look at compusa's external DVD-RW drives that support Mac - they have 2 of them - both sold out. I'm also seeing a lot of people waiting for their Macs. Used iBooks and PowerBooks at the big resellers (like smalldog) don't even last a day at resellers if they are priced at normal market rates. Everyone is sold out of Mac Minis locally, and long waits on mail order.

Every indication I'm seeing is that Apple computer sales are booming. The only ones readily available seem to be high end G5s (too pricey), iMacs, and the eMac (too bulky).
