Cool! Macindells!
But, tell me. Doesn't a good OS on a shitty computer cancel each other out?

Even worse, if you put a real shitty OS on a real shitty computer it does not make for a real good situation--if you know what I mean...

Don't believe everything you think

Far from that.

You have to see it to believe it.

Well, no doubt, you're referring to WINDOWS because it is the shittiest OS in the world. As for the shittiest computer, that would be hard to call but I can betcha, it's NOT an Apple!

Oh, I believe you. OSX has been written to run on Intel Processors for 6 years. You get the best for your money because you can run OSX and keep your old computers.

My Dell XPS Core Duo is about 3 months old.

My Dell 700m is about a year and a half old, and so is my Dell 9300.

700m and 9300 are based on Pentium M, m1210 is based on Core Duo.

I wouldn't call them old just yet.

You may want to seriously think about a new danasoft tricky thingy. It says I'm running Windows and using IE6. Perish the thought!

on topic: seriously, what should I look for in a notebook these days if I plan to do substantial Photoshop and AutoCad (killer graphics), not so much about music or entertainment (basic sound will suffice), connectivity and respectable battery life as I gear towards getting back to work towards the end of the year. It should be quite an upgrade even with current middle-of-the-line products as I am currently using Inspiron 8600/ pentium M 1600MHz 1.2GHz w/ 512MB RAM which is now 3 years old(must sound so basic compared to some of your toys).

Photoshop loves memory, so get 2GB.

Anything with Core Duo and dedicated graphic card should be fine.

Those new chips overpower Pentium 4 machines hands down.
