My new toy

I got a new Apple laptop last week. I have not enjoyed a new computer this much since my first computer as a kid a long time ago and my first Linux box in 1994. It's an amazing work of engineering and UI design. My favorite feature: the the transparent terminal. Dells, HPs, IBMs do the job. But Apple has really gone the extra mile for making it a pleasure to use the computer. Do I miss anything? I wish the keyboard shortcuts were more customizable like Linux (i.e. I always switch caps lock to serve as the control key instead) or more consistent like Windows.

I'm looking to get a digital camera. If you are really happy with yours, leave me a comment.

Hi,

I am planning to buy a powerbook and it is a LOT of money for me to put in. After reading your post I was wondering whether I should go ahead with it or not. I need it for extensive programming and writing ;;)

It definitely has to run some flavor of Linux properly. I'll have to give up windows which I wont mind but it would be a problem at work becoz we generally make our prototypes work on windoz...

SO I was wondering if it is worth the effort and the money to get one.

TIA

Regards,
Vibhanshu
