  • Sept or Oct 1998, registered as "e tutti pi eye", IIRC. I had way too many usernames on different forums, so I consolidated them all to this one.
  • well, I for one won't be buying a mac again (last mac bought was in April 2000, but it's still up and running). For the 4 PC's I've bought since, however, I'd love to get Mac OS X. Heck, I would have absolutely no problem paying the $199 for the 5…
  • [quote]Originally posted by zMench: Snoopy, are you a betting man? ?Cause if you are, I wouldn?t be surprised if 2003 will be a very good year for you (and I) indeed. Expect Apple market share to be around 15% and stock price at $80/share at the …
  • If *I* were a PC salesman and wanted to steer a customer away from a mac... Here's how I'd do it (apple makes it easy). Ok, the mac that families, or pretty much anyone shopping at compUSA et al, would be looking at, would be the flat panel iMac…

  • [quote]Originally posted by Chris Cuilla: lots of stuff you wrote I hardly ever visit these forums anymore (once every few months), so I haven't seen your posts prior to this thread. In any case, I hope the people here appreciate the econ expla…
  • maybe they're not classics per se, but the LC 475 and the original PowerMac (the 6100) were the epitome of the pizza-box machines, and I have to give them "mad props" for that neye
  • it seems that people are overlooking the obvious chicken and egg here. Sure, if you want to prop up "the apple way" you can say that "see, macs retain value much better than other computers, therefore the product is superior". I would ask that y…
  • ThinkingDifferent - now that's just plain incorrect and a gross generalization. [quote] For some reason, people who buy a PC go for quanity not quality. So in my PC, I have a seagate IV baracuda drive. It has liquid bearings to minimize n…
  • [quote] Just because he got a PC doesn't mean he's going to stop using his Mac. Exactly. After I got my 3 windows machines, it's not like I stopped using my iMac. Oh, wait, actually I did I do still have the mac set up though, so that…
  • abso-frickin-lutely! that system completely rocks, and if you really only paid that much, and the price includes a 17" flat panel and $200 in shipping, then you got yourself a great deal. what can I say, I'm jealous! heh, until I upgrad…
  • Tom's faked P4 (they later admitted it, but I have to run, so this is the only link I could find before I leave for work this AM): http://www.aceshardware.com/forum?read=80034125
  • apple sales statistics (from the latest 10-Q). These are "Macintosh CPU unit sales (in thousands) " for the trailing 9 months. 6/29/02 - 4,299 6/30/01 - 3,913 Now, I have no idea if the wording about cpu unit sales is intentionally mislead…
  • Interesting that this thread is still around since I last posted. The most recent update on my own situation. My g/f and I were bored this weekend, and thought "hey, gamecube's only $99 after eb mail-in rebate, let's get one". So, we read som…
  • A couple things: 1) I thought I'd hate fps without a keyboard. Halo's scheme, however, is a very good construct - the dual analogue system works great. 2) I really like the DVD player. However, I don't have much to compare it to, so maybe …
  • interesting. Once sp3 goes in, it updates the "software update" thing. I wonder if perhaps it's doing it's own thing in the background when IE starts. It doesn't very plausible to me, but it's a related possibility. Can you verify that if you …
  • that's really weird. I've set up 5 Win2k Servers (2 of which run advanced server) in the past few months. I've also updated 40 machines to sp3 without any hitches. Is there anything "special" about your install that you might consider to be out o…
  • I don't use macs anymore, but the sticker looks so good (IMO) on my car that I've left it on: neye
  • If anyone is interested in buying an Itanium, they're really not going to care about the P4 speeds. No one is going to drop a $5000 processor (or 16 cpus) in a system costing between $10,000 and $150,000, and not know that Mhz is irrelevant for the…
