Well actually, a backlit version was released with a higher resolution screen, for all we know the first definition could have very well been referencing this model. Calling people names isn't a very affective way to get your point across, unless you're in kindergarten perhaps.
example of a person who gets overly rude and upset over nothing, like in this game boy advance SP post:
Guy1: My 2007 Powerbook g4 is great!
Rude Guy: omg! you stupid f***ing noob! the last powerbook was released in 2006! get you facts right fagot!
Guy2: dude, that was a little bit too harsh......
Something everybody these days seems to hate.
I bought a used second generation iPod (no, not a touch I'm talkin' the old 20gig model from 2002) and the old beast has delivered nothing but solid performance. I get far better battery life than with my old creative Zen. And at only 35$ on Kijiji you can't go wrong. And while I don't have anywhere near 20gigs of music, that extra space is great if I want to use my iPod as an external drive. And even my past models have been great performers. Those of you who seem to suffer iPod problems and scratches are probably rough and rowdy jocks and are better suited handling a simple flash based player, although a lot of my friends report ROM crashes with their flash players...
Friend 1: I had to take back my creative player, it got that white screen of death again...
Me: Nods while listening to old monochromatic iPod.
A very controversial platform introduced by Apple back in '85. Some love it, most hate it. The general consensus is that you can't do ANYTHING with them. I'll admit outright that a factory shipped apple computer lacks the ability to run games. But for those who don't play games, it's not a loss. And the platforms secure Unix core and lack of popularity make it a rare target for hackers and viruses. Not to mention that the previous PowerPC based generations were true monsters. The RISC based computers were oh so easy to program. And reached real world results that are hard to achieve on the x86 platform. Needless to say, my respect for that platform dropped exponentially since the advent of Intel based Macs. But the simple intuitive GUI makes up for the hardware drawback. It's Unix roots hold several advantages over other Os's on the market. If anything, the lack of a registry and no Dll's are the Unix system's biggest forte. All I can say, is that I've been using my 68k based Mac Plus, PowerPC based Powerbook 1400c, Power Mac G4 and Powerbook G4 happily for years. I do own a PC, but it's pretty pokey sometimes and has to be whiped clean every year. When I need a huge library of programs, than i'll whip out my Hp Mini, for something zippy and simple, my Macintoshs reign supreme. It's all a matter of what you want to do.
PowerPC Macintosh computers= Fast, simple.
x86= Far more common, overly complex, once used Netburst, and that's bad enough.
