    Funny you should mention it Tom. I get a laptop from work but I don't have administrator's rights so it is very inflexible. I told DW that when our desktop computer goes that I would like to replace it with a comprable Mac.

    I've got Administrators rights on my work laptop and I still can't stand the thing! :thumbsdown:

    That's why I use my MacBook Pro for most all of my "real" work that requires anything more than email. Then I just email a copy to myself. Crude, but effective. :mental:

    If you get a Mac desktop (iMac I assume), I can just about guarantee that you're gonna love it! Don't believe me? Just ask Skywatcher! :yes:

    Well Tom, may have to be a while, I am in my master's program too. So with two college tuitions to pay...not much left for a lot of purchasing. Praying that our cars hold up and our computers too.:tongue:

    Well DD graduated Tuesday night and she got her Mac Book Pro. She was just floored! She said it was the best gift she ever got (then thought about the D60 Nikon kit we got her...hehe:tongue:) and said it was a tie. She loves it. I want to get the picture of her opening the wrapping posted...maybe today or tomorrow.:thumbsup:

    Thanks Josh, Tom, DB....it was a great day to be sure.

    Mick, she was speechless, maybe for the first time in her life!:tongue: She stammered and all. She was totally taken with it.

    Congrats on your boy mate, well done! It feels wonderful to feel so proud of your kids. :yes:

    Kudos Mick's boy!
