Sorry to hear that dude!
I can't imagine not having my Mac or PC!
Really if you have both it like having 2 girlfriends the innocent, sophisticated, elegant, posh and cultured brunette and the dirty, nasty, kinky, blonde slappa!!
Really and certain times you want one or the other, and sometimes both

Awww, but don't worry: You can pick up a cheap emac or older iMac somewhere down the line when things are looking better...

i could, but i got rid of the osx86 dvd. i've decided to not keep any bootleg stuff and stick with all legit software(when it comes to mac stuff that is i think their software is actually worth the money....unlike windows xp which is 200 bucks)

and yea, i could get a cheap emac/imac later on but i dont think i want to do that. i would much rather get a 17/20in imac. it would be nice to have a all in one sort of a package.


sigh...it just sucks though
im definitely pretty sad i have to let this thing go.

:: pats the G3:: sniff....ill never forget you little guy

macanal i couldn't have put it better if i tried. that statement is so friggin true its not even funny.

mac = you keep on comin back to it because it offers quality OS,GUI,SOFTWARE
PC = you keep on going back to it because it offers QUANTITY when it comes to software(compatibility) and games

Well my Powermac is a sophisticated, elegant, posh, kinky blonde and my AMD 64 is definitely a dirty, nasty, brunette slappa.

I wouldn't call either innocent though. :p

Somehow, I suspect that your only girlfriends are your computers.

Just kidding.

thanks for the nice words guys. ya know at first this thread was meant as somewhat of a joke but the more i think about it, the more i realize im definitely going to miss this little guy. but i guess the positive side of this is that i have vowed to buy the first iMac(17-21 lcd ones) with a intel proc in it. then i can rid myself of my PC. have dual boot setup on the imac and use windows if/when i desperately need to.

At least you can play Morrowind .

Can I ask, why don't you sell the PC and keep the mac ?

At a guess I'd say it's because the PC wouldn't sell for much.
