Ordered an Apple iBook (cache)
My old notebook is a noname Celeron 300 subnotebook (ok, in fact it's a Uniwill 290i2 (cache)
), which is really quite nice (no such small Wintel notebooks were built in the last years until Intel came up with the Centrino stuff), but starts to get a little wearisome. Display problems, small broken casing parts, no internal CDROM drive, just one USB port, power management is a pain, be it with Windows 98SE (2K/XP have problems with PCMCIA support on this machine), or with Linux (suspend to disk is possible, but the system is dead slow after resuming). No fun. And the CPU is too slow for DIVX.
So, now, an 12" iBook with everything (Bluetooth, Airport, max. RAM & HDD), and a Keynote (cache)
license - but no Apple Care (just too expensive, about 20% of the hardware price). Will need a few weeks to arrive, though.
Other Mac software on my to-buy list is OmniGraffle pro (cache)
and Papyrus (cache)
. I didn't write any major document since my diploma thesis (which was done with Papyrus for OS/2), but I just want to own the software. You never know.
