HELLO! This may come as a huge shock to some of you, if you started out on the "final thread" then ended up reading it again 7 months later. lol.

Well i'll make this quick, i was just comming around to see what was up, since to again, your surprise, i'm a powerbook user now. I think it was just the simplicity of the ibook that sent me for a loop.

BTW, i have posted once or twice under the alias AWU_GigaByte, since i haven't used LNEtubaPLYR in many months...

*waits for the beatings*

LOL. I suppose the reserection of that thread was you reason for posting this one?

Out of curiosity, what caused the switch back after your original disgruntlement? Still have the Athlon64 laptop?

And yes, you do deserve a beating.

I'm actually very happy i switched back. Idk if it has anything to do with "once you go mac you never go back" type of thing. But just after i sold the ibook, i got really big into linux. Then realizeing that OSX is basically a functional linux, it interested me again. I then started to think about the cons of the ibook. Basically the lack of a line in and the 12inch screen drove me crazy. Just not enough room to work.

I think i said somewhere in that thread that i wouldn't rule out buying another apple and i guess i didn't

But i have to say i couldn't be more happy with the powerbook. I just think that the ibook was more for the beginner. The PB does everything i'd want. I could go on about how i now hate windows, but i won't :-P

I do still have the athlon laptop, although i'm looking to sell it. And yes, i still have my alienware, but they are both pretty much retired since the arrival of the PB.

And to the person who said i was a moron for buying an alienware, i don't see the difference in buying an apple (premium brand) and buying an alienware (premium brand). Apple ram is regular ram, but since its "apple" its more. Same thing with alienware. So in that case, we're all morons, and i'm proud of it! :cool:

I got the 15 inch PB. 1.67ghz g4, 100 gig hdd, radeon 9700, 128mb video ram. 1 gig system ram. When i opened it up, i had to take a few minutes before turning it on, just to look at it.

Mostly wanting a unix based laptop. I tried getting all sorts of distros on my athlon but could never get the wireless to work... and just the general sick and tired of windows...explorer crases, viruses, spyware. Plus the althon laptop was so freaking heavy, i wanted somthing lighter and more slim. The powebook acheives those things very well

Welcome back I switched over with a PB and love it! I thought I wouldn't be able to deal with the 12" screen, but it works well with OSX

awu_gigabyte/LNEtubaPLYR,

This is too funny! I just got an e-mail notification today (3/10/05), from a reply to your old post. I was just thinking, "I wonder what ever happened to LNEtubaPLYR?" Then I found this post. :lol:

Glad everything work out for the best in the end.
