My new baby!

    I'm so happy!

    After spending several years with a terrible HP pavillion and an antique Compaq, I have a new laptop. An Apple no less!

    Here's my new precious


    I went for the 17" version :biggrin:

    What? Something wrong?
  6. Sep 8, 2006 #5

    Nothing at all, actually. I'm a little envious. Just the thread title is all.

    Mac people! We got another one!

    "One of us. One of us..."

    And that is exactly why i don't like Mac whores. Like my former roommate. Creepy conformists.

    The new ones are nice machines though. Just a bit too pricey for me, however.

    Mac people can be really convincing... I must say, more and more people at my university are switching to mac, and having worked with a few lately... I must say I'm hooked!

    "Mac whores?" "Conformists"? When the heck did 5% market share indicate conformity?

    Very nice Dimitri!!

    Unfortunately, large businesses in the US have agreed on a standard, and the standard is not Mac, it's what we used to call "IBM compatible", and IE is the default browser for large corporations.

    I can't use a MAC if I want to work from home, everything is Windows based in the corporate world.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    No, I'm talking about people like my former roommate, who like to be unique individuals by being exactly the same as all their friends.

    Oh, them. I know lots of those. The same who rail against the notion of school uniforms yet they wear a uniform every day.

    I made a website a few weeks ago, it looked really nice on my mac.. until I went to check it on a PC.. terrible. After changing the fonts it looked a lot better, but the mac still displays the site a lot nicer.

    I really had to get used to my mac, but PCs now look like they are from the stone-age to me :wink: Congrats on the nice buy!

    And they love their macs. Or at least, my roommate and his friends did. Drove me bananas.

    That's what bootcamp is for :wink:
  17. Sep 8, 2006 #16

    And to think you doubted us in the beginning. :biggrin:

    Welcome to the fold Dmitri!

    I've been just loving the Mac commercials lately. They're hilarious!

    If it's a girl, it pretty much has to be named 'Granny Smith'. As far as I know, that's the only apple named after a woman.
    Awesome machine, Dmitri. I wanted one so badly...
    I'm content, though, that a woman I know has built me a custom G3 iBook for $300. I just have to get a ride into the city to pick it up.
    I must admit that your title had me expecting a feud; I figured that you were going to claim to have had an affair with George Jones' wife. :biggrin:
