Proud to be a Mac Guy ..

aright... now I am a Mac guy :)
I purchased my dream laptop this week and yes it's a Mac. I ordered my mac couple of weeks back and now i have got it shipped. I could not resist to open that nice cool black case...and the moment i open it.. it says.. " Designed by Apple in California" ! wow what a neat way to say that you have purchased something special. Inside the box l see my cool titanum finishing shine on my new G4 PowerBook !

Believe it or not.. this is my first hand experience with a macintosh.. trust me... apple has the best cool product with great user friendly software. Well I don't have to tell anything about why i got this product... still .. i'll say it any way.. from all the research that i made about laptops.. each manufacturer is some way or the other is competing in the market with a cheaper product.. but Apple... their No 1 priority is QUALITY ! and I love quality products. (Top 10 Reasons to choose Mac) The more I use this little toy the more I am appreciating that I bought such a lovely product ! Don't get carried away by these myths. Still not convinced? Hear what these ppl have to say about Mac ...Gues what.. the new version of Mac OS X has built in support for Java 1.4 and the moment i downloaded eclipse for Mac I am all set to go !!! If I am to say all these in a single line... "man.. it's simply the best" !

more about my beautiful babe...
