    @ light of erindi--mac is awesome...though a little overpriced..
    i got it for a good price so i bought it mainly for recording...but havent donw any serious work yet.

    @neo---i have complaints regarding the battery of the powerbook..
    no complaints on other stuff..

    this thing is very slick....and very very comfortable to use.

    i bought it from apple resellers out here.

    For those specs very expensive. When did you purchase it i think thats the price when they newly introduced it?

    i should have waited..but i was stupid.
    those guys came out wid the g5 fairly quickly..
    and the prices for the g4 came down..
    still kick my self for it..
    but what to do..i already have it with moi..
    altho im happy with it.

    i know...wont make that mistake again..
    the only good thing out of this is that the g4 is the standard in the recording industry now.
    so that way its cool...well just have to take this in my stride.
    will defintely wait bfore i jump in to any of the deals.
    im very impulsive.

    As far as i know... Jayswami has Mac!

    Well since apple is too costly and mainly used by Graphic Designers in India... i havent seen that in someone's home!
    Though, i used it and its a beauty of machine!

    Now, i have heard they have released MAC Mini version starting at a price range of 33000/- so that everyone can have a look at it!

    Music Software + hardware:

    Its been 4 years since i bought my mac. hasnt crashed even once :shock: havent had the urge to upgrade the OS till now. But i heard that panther ichat is compatible with yahoo, and suports audio hence am tempted :p: musically i have no need.

    the mac is like a car, u dont upgrade your car's engine every day do u? but with windoze PC thats what u gotta do... upgrade this.. upgrade that etc etc.
