This is not my first Mac, but actually the third Mac this month. Both my wife and I are computer professionals, and we have a network of MS Windows computers, three desktops and two laptops at home. I've bought an old PowerMac G4 from eBay, more as a toy for my kid, a couple of weeks back. I was pleasantly surprised with Panther, and realized it is more than a toy for my kid. I then immediately bought a G4 cube, which I think is the best looking personal computer ever. Then tonight I've ordered a G4 Powerbook to replace my wife's aging Sony Z505 laptop (which is now officially for sale if anyone's interested). This is the first Mac that I've ordered directly from Apple than eBay. I am also seriously contemplating whether to replace my Sony Z1 with iBook. I love the Sony's screen and light weight, but now I want a Panther! Seriously, Apple should port Panther to Intel platform. I bet it will attract a lot of Windows AND ((Linux)) users.
