Where do geeks go to die?
Answer: The Apple Store. A bunch of us decided to do a pilgrimage to the nearest Apple sales point, and unfortunately nobody got out unharmed. I survived with only some scratches (a couple of games and a TV adapter), but one of the guys who came "just to browse" ended up buying a 15" Powerbook, and a French guy could not resist buying a 23" Cinema Display.
The question is not whether we are still sane, but whether the French guy can fit the display in his carry-on baggage...
ETech is NOT a good place to be if you have ever wondered about buying a Mac, because everyone there is such an Mac überuser. You just cannot help but be sucked in after seeing how cool it is to edit documents with SubEthaEdit and chat with everyone in the same Rendezvous circle.
Using a Mac is not about speed or the latest 3D games. It is about the aesthetic experience of completeness and satisfaction.
Update (the next day): Went back. Big mistake. Now own an iSight.
