    Yeah but I figured I would need the storage space vs. the speed....

    I think this computer will be smoking fast with the Duo processors in it and the 2GB Ram....

    You'll luv the apple..I'm rockin'a 20" 2.0GHZ iMac and it's fast, no freezing, no pop-ups and zero virus's unlike my peecee The glossy screen was more for those that were going to watch alot of DVD's on their laptops using Frontrow. Awesome computers ENJOY!

    oooh yea the 17 " it is sweet I have the 1.67 mhz as my second computer along with a G5 Thats a sweet size screen. your gonna love macs.

    The Apple Discussions are a great source if you have questions later on...they solve all my problems.

    I bought a thingie that elevates it off the desktop a few inches and angles it since it sits mostly on my desk awaiting work when the G5 is busy

    Get macStumbler if you want to look for wireless networks out and about as it has more range than the built in airport sensor.

    PM me if you have any questions or better yet
