    Your link to the PB 15" probably contained your price. However, it has now timed out.

    This link takes you to the product page with starting price.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Windows has an installed life of 6 months. It must then be reinstalled, because it will begin to rot in the core. That's my experience, anyway. I like it when it works, but i manage to FUBAR it within less than a year and have to start over. At that point, all the reboots to get everything installed can be a bit painful...

    Trashcan:

    If you plan on using an OS besides windows on the laptop regardless, Apple has some really nice laptops. My roommate runs a startup software company and highly recommends Apple laptops, even though he works on high end Unix systems at work.

    If i get to the point this summer that i feel comfortable jettisoning windows, i may pick up a PowerBook myself.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I'm hoping to convince Phil to let me borrow his for a day or two, but shhhhhhhhh. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't mind losing Windows at all.. I try to look at it from a purely pragmatic point of view. Windows does everything I need, very easily. It works the best for me out of the box, and requires the least customization of all the operating systems I have tried. If I try OS X and like it better, hey, I'll gladly switch.

    Probably the most important app I would have to look at would be XCode. Has anyone here used it?

    Hey Est,

    The reason things are remaining civil is because the most important rule at **********/terraforums is 'be nice'. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
