Buying a Mac?

Of course you should.

– Mac PowerBook – The first ones were a little buggy. Daily Tech suggests you buy one with the serial numbers starting with W8611: revision D

– Intel iBook – MacRumors says probably shipping in June.

– Wireless mouse and keyboard? I bought these with my Mac Mini last year and i HATE them. The batteries run out all the time and there is no extra USB ports on the keyboard. Save your money!

    My first generation iBook G4 still works fine, no reason to upgrade…

    Interesting. I bought a wireless keyboard for my (aging) G4 desktop over two years ago and have only changed the batteries three times. I switch the keyboard off when I sleep, maybe that’s the difference.

    yeah – and my rechargeble batteries are getting old and no longer hold the charge
    they ran out right before an event i was speaking out and someone had to go out and buy batteries so teh speaker (me) could use his computer. how embarrassing!

    I got one of the first MacBooks. The first one I received had a display issue and was quickly replaced. This one is great. I have to say my first foray into the world of Apple has been a good trip.

    and now windows XP on a mac – who would have thought…
    looks like PC users will at last be able to use some sexy machinery rather than all that black plastic nonsense…

    I bought the Apple wireless keyboard a while ago, I get around 2-3 months from a set of rechargeable batteries. Same with the mouse. seem to have a great little unit.
