Mac sucks...it's like a car that can only run on specialized fuel...
Well nice hardware! How does the powerbook run overall? Any complaints? It looks very good...
@ 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.
You in india? How much did it cost you? How much hdd?
yes im in mumbai..
i bought it from apple resellers out here.
they are called UNICORN.
i had to shell out 1 lac for it.
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.
Its always wise to wait, when p4 computers came out with was priced 1 lakh and above look at it now.
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.
Yes, you have to be very patient. Anybody else on mac here?
