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 have always been a Mac user. I have an iMac G5 (pre-isight) and it works great. I also have quite a bit of vintage machines. They are a Beige Powermac G3, Powerbook G3 Wallstreet, Powermac 6100, and Performa 575. I also have a Powerbook 520c but it is not working anymore sad.gif . At my dads work, He owns a Powermac G5, Powerbook G4 15", Powermac G4, Bondi iMac, and a Graphite iMac. He is a photographer so thats why he has so many. I only have 2 PC's at home that both run winxp (which i dislike a lot) and then at work my dad has 3 PC's that run win2000 except 1 runs winxp. I think I will stick with Macs 'till the day I die. biggrin.gif
