Nothing against Apple but anyone see that video "Apple stole my inner child"?
The part when he dropkicked the thing was hilarious.

L27Buick, Have you looked at the Dell PC'*? I have owned 4 Dells over the years and have never had a problem. If you check out the dell website they also have a dell factory outlet with some good buys.
My present dells are a Dell Dimension 8200 2.4 ghz and a Dell Dim 4550 2.66ghz.

There is a host of new worms running amock, one of which is slammer. Patches are available from Microsoft almost daily. If you have not rebooted in 20 or so days, there are plenty of patches you have not installed leaving yourself vulnerable.
