Quote: from Mcbg350 on 4:33 pm on Mar. 23, 2004[br]The Mac is the greatest computer ever.  I have had a Mac for all of my life.  I started with a PowerPC which I admit was slow and not a very good machine, but I then upgraded to an iMac which is the single biggest inovation in computer history.  Now I own 3 Mac's.  I have an iMac, a PowerMac G5,and an iMac laptop.  I use them every day. I could not live with out a Mac. So stop bagging on Mac's.


An iMac Laptop? what is that?
Hope you dont mean an iBook (you probably do) cause first of all its called an iBook (DUH) and second of all its NOT a laptop... laptop is a brand name (just like iBook) the correct 'universal' name is a notebook

Laptop is a perfectly correct term.  A laptop is just generally a bit larger than a notebook, but they are generally used interchangably.  :)

Yes, well, I'm not about to call my old PowerMac a '68000' (forget the actual number)
