I just bought it today to try to make the switch as making the laptop purchase has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made in my life. I feel like having used a windows for so long, its not right for me. So if I were to return it there'd be a restocking fee which is crap considering I barely used it. My loss is your gain though:

SPECS:
15 inch powerbook
1.5 processor
512 ram
80gb hard drive
backlit keyboard
superdrive (DVD burner)
etc etc

Retail price is 2499.00. I am asking for around 2350. If you want the extended warranty add 250. For 2600. But feel free to negotiate with me!

If you want to see my sales receipt I will show it to you dated the 11th of August 2004.

So if you are willing to take loss. Why not pay the restocking fee?

Dual 2.2GHz powered by AMD Opteron - *Sends G5 & 8Gb Ram to scrap heap* Yeah! finally switched BACK!
Didn't they like, let you play in the shop first? What kind of stupid store doesn't allow you to test the product before you buy?

Hey dude... I'd advise you pay the restocking fee, if you really want to return it. But from a non bias view, a Powerbook will save you lots of trouble free hassle, specially if your at college and your writing up your thesis. The last thing you'll want is windows dying and the deadline is tomorrow.

Give it a try man... if you need any help, we're here...
anything you want to know, just ask.

yeah I have had it for about 5 days now and like it a lot. I was just having buyers remorse. I had bought a dell 8600 after debating long and hard about the apple or pc. (Used pc for past few years after always having older macs). After a week or so of having the dell I sent it back due to screen size not being what they said (res. too high for me). I do have some questions which I will post in a different thread.

By the way, today in the Washington Post there are about five articles on PCs and security that really made me thankful for getting a mac. Problems that we had with spyware and stuff on the pc. Now I remember part of the reason why I considered a mac in the first place.
