I think we all know that I want a PowerBook. I just friggin’ mentioned it in my previous post. I’ve just about got the wife sold. I have been pretty much set on the 12″ with the SuperDrive. I’d like the 15″, but it’s just to damn expensive.
Off topic. Off topic….
Yes, back to last night. The presenter was “gung-ho” Apple. And watching him do Swing Development with the Mac OS X gui was killing me.
Here is the best part, JavaMUG gives away a number of books each month as door prizes. Last night there were like 10. I got picked 2nd-to-last and didn’t expect anything good to be left. But sitting right there on the table, beaming at me, was a beautiful copy of Mac OS X for Java Geeks!!!!!!!!! It was that and something else, I didn’t even look at the other book. I grabbed the Java Geeks book and said “I’ll take this one, thanks…”
Needless to say, I think that was God’s way of saying, “BUY THE MAC ALREADY, ERIK….. YOU WANT IT. YOU DESERVE IT……”
I’ve found a 12″ w/SuperDrive for $1499. The same site has the 15″ w/SuperDrive for $2299, but again, I think I gotta go with the 12″. It’s $800 cheaper. $800 for 3 inches is hard to justify.
Any opinions on going with the 12″ vs the 15″ out there?
