hello all

in General Discussion edited January 2014
ok, this is going to be my first post so i decided to start a thread welcoming myself! you might wonder why i think i deserve my own thread. my answer to that would probably be that i don't, but a first post in an apple community is for some reason intimidating to me. so instead of just putting my two sense in the apple outsider discussions somewhere i decided to introduce myself.



i have been reading most everything i can on appleinsider for the last two weeks. luckily i've had more free time than usual at work and have been able to keep up with the threads. i don't know very much about computers but i guess that's why i'm here.



my first mac (a tangerine ibook) is in the mail and i've been trying to decide between the new combo drive imac and the combo drive emac for about a month. i was waiting until after mwny to order one and i am now waiting for it to come with jaguar.



i'll be making a trip to the apple store in columbus this weekend (my second trip). hopefully this will help my decision. any advice would be helpul. i'm sure most of my posts will be found in appleoutsider until i get my computers. then i'm sure i'll have plenty of questions for everyone.



i've looked at a few other forum websites and i like appleinsider the best!

well thanks for reading and have a great day!

    Welcome. The natives are quite restless lately, but they generally don't bite, just threaten to take their ball and go home. So don't be afraid and post away.

    Don't mind alliance's spikey demeanor, he has bitterness about the laughable state of his college's athletics programs. He also just recovered from a beating in which he was duct taped and beaten with a baseball bat for walking on grass he wasn't supposed to.

    Since you're from Ohio, we'll type s...l...o...w...e...r.



    Just kidding. Welcome! We don't mince words here, so feel free to jump right in, be an intolerant, ______-hating, grumpy bigot, and have fun!



    Oh, it takes a thick skin to go at it in Fireside Chat, so be warned.

    Hello. You may hear alot about me but don't believe a word of it. They never proved a thing. They never found the bodies. Just be sure to reply to all my threads.

    Get the iMac, I feel that it will have a longer shelf life than the eMac, it will probably last longer.... <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" /> <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

    Hey true.. this seems the nicest mac community.. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> the fastest one.. and Global!

    In the italian forums there are 10 users .. (actives) and 3 or 4 want to be someone and if i say anything they argue.. (to conquist me?)



    if i'll get a 'fixed' compu i want to be able to upgrade it ... so that'd be my choise. i hate the interior design look .. u can't change the processors, HDs, peripherals..



    but i prefer the laptops... if i had money i'd get powerbook... but i dont so i have to be happy with ibook <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> ... ilove with the ibook

    Yeah, well, all the women get scared away. Whenever a woman shows up on these boards she is hoarded with requests for a high resolution picture of herself so they can use it as their desktop background. I insist this is why Kate really doesn't come back here anymore

    Yea. What is that all about?

    I remember everyone gushing over Miss Tron only to have it be 68K. A fvcking bizzarre ass weirdo in disguise.
