oh yeah, i just got my iPod 20 gigz a day after it came out, they had stocks of that in apple store so I happen to be there at the time. Love it.

Planning on getting new shiz next month. We'll see whats more valuable, a 23" or a new car. It is hard to decide.

Wow that is amazing Tim. Please tell me how is it? Is the large white caption where the apple is on the monitor annoying or noticeable? Congrats :D


To be honest, you only notice it when someone asks about it, the screen is so big its all you see.

Only problem I have yet to find is, which could be a software problem, but there is static when i have itunes playing a song and some alert pops up,

I made a run to the Apple store in Chicago last saturday and picked up a 12" Powerbook G4 (1.33 w/Superdrive) + a 4Gen 20GB iPod. With my student discount I saved about $430. I'm totally loving my powerbook, its sooo portable and its my first time in Mac-land. The only thing I want to do is get some memory (currently @ 256MB).

PS: I just wrote this on my Powerbook :D

Congrats Orliville. I looked a long time back and discovered you could save more if your a student developer. Is this still true?


Well, my grad school is part of Apple's academic program so I was able to get a discount on Apple hardware: $200 off the powerbook, $30 off the ipod. Then Apple had a Cram and Jam promo that had a $200 mail in rebate.

Not sure about the student developer thing, unless it's the same as the student discount...
