They are a bit expensive but I am not sure why you are describing them as crap. They are using mid-high end Pentium M's (yes there are faster M's out there), the cases are made from Magnesium which is light, durable, and not the cheapest material to build products from.
yeah but why not titanium and a g4 processor? i ADORED my titanium computer.

it was the last of the TiBooks, 1ghz, 512ram, 60gb drive, dvd burner, 64mb video card, wireless b card. ohhh it was nice.

sold it when it was 2 years old for a grand and a half(to buy my mercedes) hows that for holding its value?
That is good for holding its value. The case was not actually made from Titanium (at least I don't believe it was) it was just the name.

Have you seen the stats on the new intel powered appels? They are claiming 4x the performance of the G5.
It was titanium coated.
Nope... it was Titanium.... but they are all Al now since it was interfering with Airport (802.11) connections.

Yep... have seen the new intel versions.... It seems so wrong...LOL... like a ford engine in a Mercedes or something...LOL. I don't like that they haven't adequately explained the technology to me. I'd like to know how everything translates into gigaflops.... I can't wait to get my hands on one. I had been putting off the purchase of a new powerbook till they came out with a G5... but that never happened... I love the G5 I'm on right now... with OSX... this is the best computer I've ever had/used.


The two things I can't live without... My Mercedes...and my Mac... Love em both!!!!

I can't believe the world did not come to an end with the switch to Intel processors.

There used to be all the talk among the Apple faithful about how the RISC processors were the future and how much better they were than the CISC processors that Intel was building.

I do agree that it seems completly wrong apple using Intel processors.

She is the neighborhood "trend setter" and drives a SAAB sport wagon, but is waiting to purchase an H3.
Is that Hummer talk for she's the neighborhood "idiot" who drives a GM?
