    Any Mac users here?

    Just wondering if there was any sort of macintosh following around here?
    I recently setup our house with airport extremes, it's so awesome streaming music from iTunes to the home stereo and it is so simple at that.

    We have a mix of MAC laptops and PC's in my house. I used to be strictly MAC but haven't used them much in the past 4 years or so. Now I get a little lost using them with the silly one-button mouse, forgetting where to find things and such.

    due to the nature of my work, i've been using apple products for 15 years or so. it was never a conscious decision to use them, moreso that there was no realistic alternative.

    I use a Ti Powerbook (PC at work, yuk). Running 802.11b/g at home. Haven't set up a home stereo... but I do love my iPod playing through my car stereo. Can't wait for G5 to come out on the PB.

    Well portable G5's are a bit away, looks like we might see dual-core G4's in the PB's before that, which is still cool. I used to listen to my iPod in my car but our new Xa currently does not have an aux input so I may get a product that lets you plug the iPod into a multi-disc input.

    Our setup: 1.25 GHz 20" iMac w/512 mb ram and 150G HD running 10.3.5, bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
    Our roommate bought our old 800mhz 15" iMac and a 700mhz G3 iBook all running 10.3.5 as well.
    All using Airport through an Airport Express w/cable setup.

    I have one old crusty Mac but it's running BeOS. To be honest, I've strongly considered getting a PowerBook since it's one of the few cheap choices out there for an out-of-the-box fully-supported unix laptop solution. And it's FreeBSD at that. Sometimes I just get tired of fighting with PeeCee components... especially on laptops.

    Pretty much my case too, and before Windows, it was pretty much DOS command-line stuff.
    The differences have blurred some lately, of course. I really need to get a Windows machine
    for a variety of reasons, but Mac OS rules for me.
    <rant>I have no time or patience for anyone who automatically dismisses the Mac OS
    for any reason, especially if they aren't familiar with it. I try to understand exactly why I don't
    favor Windows, so I don't make stupid, uneducated generalizations.</rant>

    But I still maintain that the Windows-Mac keystroke ratio is around 3:1

    I have an eMac that I got about 2 years ago. It is my primary computer. However, I have a PC too. I use them for different reasons, none that I care to comment about since I don't care to start a Mac v/s PC battle.
    Does the perfect bike really exist?

    I'll second that question to you MacGyver.

    I'm running a 733MHz Quicksilver G4 tower that I effin' love. When I get to grad school and have student loans to play with, I'll be getting a sweet G5 system with a wide format printer and a Imacon drum scanner....

    *drool*

    Yeah....definitely a Mac user.

    I don't really care for the new iMacs. If someone did not have a mac and was looking I would definitely recommend one but there is no way I am replacing my 20" G4 iMac with that. The design is a regression not a progression as the new iMac loses the functionality that made the last iMac so special.
    Leave your treadmill power trip behind.
