I would ask for a Mac

If you want an OS, why not get the best/real one Happy

The Mac platform is not ready for me yet. Well it is, its the mac developers that have not got round to getting the applications I use over onto the Mac.

Coming Soon :)

Yeah, it really irks me that Adobe has been taking its sweet time making their products Universal Binary. Mac using creative professionals made Adobe the company they are today - period. But, I expect to see all of that released at the MacWorld expo in January.

That aside, our other Mac friend on here needs to acknowledge that not everybody wants Mac OS Happy I think Vista will be a nice leap forward for Windows users. I'm sure I'll have plenty of fun poking at Microsoft for a while where it doesn't add up to even OSX beta but it's still nice to see a leap forward since I, myself, sometimes have to use a Microsoft OS.

Adobe is being a royal pain. I also use some internal apps and as of yet the tech guys have not got round to building mac versions. However I know they have bought a few new macs to play with so I'm hopeful!

I have put off getting a new notebook at the moment.
