My new baby.

I’ve gone and done it.
I made the switch.
I bought a 15-inch Powerbook G4. It’s a sweet little machine. Ostensibly it’s for recording some music that’s bouncing around in my head but the more I use the Powerbook the more I’m thinking this will be my main machine. I can do just about everything I could do on my PC plus it seems to be pretty idiot proof.
From an aesthetics view, it’s six nines towards perfect. Aluminum all around. Very austere shell with the simple Apple logo on top and a tiny FCC logo on the bottom. All connectors (and it’s got a ton) are on the sides and the back is a flat piece of aluminum.
Connector-wise it’s a veritable kitchen sink. Firewire 400 and 800, USB2, S-Video, and a DVI connector.
A freakin’ DVI output.
On a sadder note, I just smashed the sweet merciful crap out of my thumb and it’s already turning black. It’s becoming difficult to type.
