This isn't a Mac "issue" per se, but it doesn't really belong in a non-Mac-related forum here.

We're a pretty geeky crowd here, and I was wondering how many of you fellow Z users are recent (as in, the past year) switchers to the Mac? You get one side on, for instance, the MacRumors forums, where non-techie folks seem to be a dime a dozen, but it'd be nice to get some idea of how many power users have taken the plunge.

For the record, I switched in the pre-iPod days.

recently I played with a macbook and I was impressed with the ease of use and speed. best of all its unix based as far as I can tell. So I am saving for a macbook pro, unless I get impatient then i will grab just the regular macbook. smile.gif

I like the macbook better because of its size. Comes a bit closer to a Zaurus than the Pro biggrin.gif
It will arrive in the next days. I'm very curious.

I'll let you guys in on a little secret. If you don't need the graphics horsepower get a macbook. The aluminum cases on the pros dent. The polycarb on the macbooks just "bounces". I just wish they had backlit keyboards.

I now have the macbook. Great machine and very powerful and nice preinstalled software.
After migrating all data from Windows, I'll look into cooperation with the Zaurus.
