I’m a run-of-the-mill Mac-savvy kid who’s going away to college next year, and I don’t have US$2700 to justify spending on the lowest model of one of new PowerBook G4′s – they look like museum pieces to me. I look at them and say, “Wow, how beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, and with all that power!” but I could never justify owning one.
