im a first time apple poster, long time user. i was first turned to apples when i was like 13. my first computer was one accually. so i used them on and off my whole life. always enjoyed them but kinda found then a bit annoying cause i couldent always find shit i wanted. well after growing up and using them more (im still only 22 but thats ok) ive come to love them. and this is the story. i have a 1st gen imac. i used it alot and liked it. a smoking deal came along this school year for a dell laptop and i got it. awesome machine....untill it died over my xmas break. i was devastaited. what would i use for school? then by pure luck/apple karma my stepdad gave me his old powerbook. i love this thing even though its in deadly need of ram and stuff. i guess im just overly happy since i noticed this part of OT and found adiumx and konfabluator. makes me smile when i see the little apple logo light up. thanks mac OT users.
