Well, working does have its perks and getting your first payslip is very very tempting. So what does one do? He buys a mac... again. Cant say im overly excited, I owned a iBook G4/800 a while back and it was of a good spec (40Gb Drive, BT, AE and 640Mb Ram - none of which was standard at that time) but i can say im very looking forward to Tiger. My dad has my old iBook and i installed Tiger for him, so i have seen the basics such as spotlight, dashboard and automator, but i have never actually been able to take the time to explore it much. Will be interesting to see the changes, if any to the current 1.33GHz iBooks to my old 800MHz. Physically i dont think there are any, but performance wise and perhaps hardware vendor changes (if any) might make a difference. Anywho, will get back to you in a week edit - and please don't start with the, "you should have waited off for the x86 based systems" because quite frankly i dont like the idea.
