Thanks, Lou for posting these! Excellent stuff. And good luck with your laptop purchase. :)

So, you're going to the PowerBook after all?? Wow. I didn't expect you to actually DO it! Hmmm.... Now I'm nervous.... if you really end up hating it, can I claim "plausible deniability"?
I actually do really like OS X...but I think I'm going to like it MUCH better 6-9 months from now, when things are more mature (and 3rd party folks get more of the apps totally updated, especially for my utterly necessary Palm).

So glad to hear you've decided to leave the dark side and return to good hardware and good software on Mac OS X.

Just ordered a 14" iBook early this morning. :-) Can't wait!
Of course, if it doesn't work out, I'll hold each and every one of you responsible...

Hey! I voted for a ultraslim thinkpad. I still believe in living like the other 97%

Hey, hey, hey! It's more like 95% and falling, but that's just boring and "safe" anyway--like buying the cheapest Chevy.
Personally, I would have spent the extra $500 and gone for the Titanium PowerBook with the G4, larger screen, better graphics, thinner enclosure, and half pound less weight. (Actually, I do have one of those.)
