Apple’s new “iBook G4”:http://www.apple.com/uk/ibook/ is an awfully tempting bit of kit for an ex-Mac owner who has long strayed from the Apple path. I have been looking for a small. light and inexpensive laptop for ages but the PC market seems to be concentrating on ever-bigger ones (unless you want to pay a small fortune). I left Apple because System 7 was less stable and offered a smaller variety of Internet applications than Windows did at the time but now with “MacOS X Panther”:http://www.apple.com/uk/macosx/ based on Unix Apple once again offers a superior OS. Alas, I doubt I could justify the purchase to my wife. However if anyone out there has really enjoyed reading this blog and has “750 pounds”:http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObjects/ukstore.woa/90701/wo/507beZar3Zp82CPaZE9zrCFahoV/ ($US 1375) to spare* it would make a nice pre-Xmas surprise!
Thanks to Tech Digest for the info

*Not to seem mercenary as this blog is not run for profit but though it has run for three years and eight months and more than a thousand people read it each day I have not received any donations to date whether of cash or of stuff from “my amazon wishlist”:http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=davidbrakeswe-21&path=registry/NNWN70BQ5SDT. Oh well…


  1. My heart is wrung. I’ll donate 5 pounds if you buy an iBook. Go for it… life’s OK over here in Macland.

  2. Maybe you should shop eBay for a used one?
