for $600 i could have a brand new, dvd-burning, panther-running imac replacement. for another hundred bucks i could have 80G of memory, although possessing the external hard drive makes that of questionable use. i would need a monitor.
just the thought of how easy this will make it for people to switch to macs makes me tingly (ellen, can you tell that your christmas gift was perfect?). when my parents finally admit that their computer is a virus-infested piece of shit that has NEVER worked properly, i can sway them to the dark side!
