The time has come for new Powerbook for us.
PS: Your threads are useless without a picture or two of strange soups and such .. ;p

The idea of MAC vs PC is really stupid. Any true computer user has both. That said, it is important to note that from 1995's 5200LC until the recent switch to intel chips, IBM chips powered the Mac. Anyone hear Vader's voice here? "I am your Father".
I don't have a MacIntel but I have G4 (and a P4 desktop and a PIII tablet).
I have many many many coworkers that are getting the Macbook Pros for work (seems to be the new favorite in the rocket science community). I even have one coworker who has his tribooting: Mac Tiger, WinXP, and Linux.
Get the MacIntel and enjoy the dark side.
I went to a demo the other day for a new edit platform- they were running Final Cut Pro HD in full rez in realtime...off a mac book pro. Very cool. The guys running the demo could not talk about them enough. They love them.
I'm posting this on a Intel iMac now. So far, no problems!
Guess I'll go ahead and get the 2 Ghz Mac Book Pro.
Sweet. Keepin' me employed...
On that note... should I wait for the next generation?
My wife has got a MacBook Pro since March and it's really nice. She has the 2.0 Ghz with 2 Gb of Ram. I installed Parallels and XP runs fine on it. Best of all the Windows partition is a file on her drive. If she gets virus or spyware, I just trash it and put in a working backup. It takes 2 mins to do so.
She's been working on the Mac for years, but there's a company she works for that has a piece of software that only runs on Windows. Yes, she could do the task on the Mac, but it's more work. Now she just fires up Parallels and she can have both OSes at the same time. Jump back and forth between them. Windows on Parallels runs fast, there is no slowdowns. If you need to run Windows on a Mac today, this is the way to go.
Here's a picture:
Wow, now I need to do what you did Alvaro, get rid of my 1.5GHz G4 PowerBook and get a MacBook Pro. How freakin awesome is that?
Hey guys...long time lurker and first time poster. I really wish I hadn't stumbled on this thread...might have to pick up a MacIntel w/ Parallel now.
Just ordered the 2GHz with 2 Gigs of RAM. Woo-Hoo!
I heard a rumor that Apple will have a iMac that you can draw directly on the screen (like a Wacom 20" stylus screen) also that Mac's software will be faster than Wacom's.
Does anyone know about this computer or when it will come out? I am holding out on the Wacom...
I'll be trying to convince our budget people that I must have one. I'm not gonna hold my breath. Their arched eyebrow is looking at my G4 w/VPC and saying convince me.
You will love it. have you seen the preview for leopard yet? its freakin' sweet
I'd like to see a full blown version of AutoDesk Land Development desktop running a volume tin on that mac/pc. I bet it would go down like a fiery plane crash.
Hey, have you heard about this new thing called Vista?
It's a PC with a dual core processor. If PC's can't handle it, then the problem resides in the AutoCad software, not the computer.
I be willing to give it a test.
