For once I agree http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I mean, how can you live with ONLY ONE mouse button? And their little windows style thing is ugly, bulky and on the macs I've seen not very fast or responsive...

My main computer is a 350mhz tower G3... We also have a 233mhz G3 desktop. I love macs. Everything is so much easier on them. I believe Apple beats PCs by miles when it comes to "plug and play" which can stop many headaches. I also have 400mhz celeron which I only use for games (that is the only downside of macs, lack of games). And as a response to the "how can you live with only one mouse button" After quick investigation any PC user could find out that Macs in fact do have 2 button mouses. Don't write off macs before you even try them. =p

Yee Haw! Someone here does have a Mac http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I personally have nothing against wintel machines, it is just that I am more productive with a Mac. If I had one complaint about Windows, its the ugly interface....uggg! Just MHO, wintel users probably think the same abouts our macs interface....

I use some sort of G4 mac at university, I find that fireworks and flash run much better on these machines than on pc's, but that stupid one button mouse is sometimes too much to handle. At least they dumped that little round mouse!

Hobnet, I already said that I have seen and used macs before, but obviously not as much as somebody that owns one! So in my relatively limited experiences with macs I've never seen a two buttoned mouse on one, or heard of them for macs. I was just stating what I have seen/heard.

I imagine DJ_B is right about the interface. What you are used to always looks better/easier...
