    Work switched to Mac
    Hooray!

    I work at an IT shop in Alaska, and my boss (who is a Mac head) has given me an older-model iBook to haul around for my daily work tasks. It's a G3 700MHz white iBook, running 10.4.2. It's packing 640MB RAM, which is nice - Tiger feels nice and responsive on it! I'm pretty impressed.

    I picked up a 15" Powerbook not too long ago, and now I suppose I can let it to the less-hectic world of sitting on my desk or migrating around my house. Having used Windows all of my professional (and talented-amateur) life, I'm completely enamoured with OS X and Apple's products. Tons of fun!

    Yay!

    Tiger is way faster than Jaguar... I used to have it on my iBook until I upgraded the HW... :-)

    I've actually got Tiger running on a 300MHz G3 teal clamshell iBook. Seems to be humming along without issue. You'll need lots of RAM, though. The clamshell has 320 or so, and the 700MHz has 640. I have a Powerbook (brand new) with 1.5GB, all of them seem to run Tiger without complaint, which is really pretty killer.
