My poor powerbook G4 has finally reached its annoying end. It's been a good computer, don't get me wrong, but the years have been unkind. The once-considered-huge 60GB hard drive is now stuffed to the gills with research work, music, etc., I'm on my 3rd battery and my 2nd power adapter. On top of that, I'm using photoshop and this cool medical imaging program called OsiriX, and they're both bringing my poor G4 to its knees.
So, with a little extra cash from a correction in my pay, I decided to take the plunge and get the MacBook Pro. 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, a 200GB hard drive, and VMWare fusion with Windows XP Pro installed. Now I can finally throw out the spare Dell that's cluttering the apartment, only to be used for CyclingPeaks and for checking that my PowerPoint presentations will actually work in Windows. One thing I'm most excited about is the MagSafe power cord that will be immune to destruction from crazy puppies who like to go flying by and ripping my Powerbook off the table.
Not much, I suppose, but new toys are always exciting.
Anyone want a well-loved PowerBook G4 for cheap?
