    I don't own a mac laptop, but I do like their trackpad gestures. And no, you can't put it on the macbook pros or anything, it has its own dedicated chip, so that's one hardware thing I think is neat.

    So I was browsing the web on a Mac. I move the cursor to the right hand corner a little. BAM!!!!! Screen goes crazy and windows change sizes, move around, and try to kill me. I just want to observe web pages! Not try to reenact Minority Report.

    Still works fine, and is on 24/7.
    Yup. My old high school has a 13 year old pentium-90 that still runs 24/7.

    I have a 13 year old windows 3.1 laptop that has a whopping 128mb of Hd space, It still works brilliantly just nobody wants to use it.

    I remember using Windows 3.1 and DOS way back in the day.

    Here at work, and on my Tablet PC I use Windows XP Professional, but my Desktop has Gutsy Gibbon.

    Chris Pirillo is a funny guy. I used to watch his show all the time.

    I also have a computer, it has notepad, and clock, and can also play a game like minesweeper.

    Also it only cost $500? $1000? NO! It only cost $99 :O

    Very nice. Do you think I should go with an external one?

    I prefer external. My internal bays are full, but if they were'nt, I'd probably still go with external. The only thing you have to get used to is the slight delay for the drive to spin up if you haven't accessed it for a while.
