    Default Tons of iBook on sale

    http://www.macusersg.org/forums/index.php?topic=27077.0

    I'm seeing at least 2-3 iBooks new on sale everyday.

    Wow. If Singnet gave a 17" PowerBook, I'll immediately sign.

    If Singnet gave away free Powermac 2.7 Ghz, 8 GIG RAM, I sure sign up asap.

    i find the Windows idea of going to "START'" button to shutdown the computer silly, so i actually created another shortcut/alias to Shutdown and Reboot the system

    no Expose la...hope Windows Vista will have something similiar hehe

    Dun be surprised when mac gets more popular, viruses start appearing.
    The problem is because there is not enough mac users to rapidly spread a virus.

    that is correct, no system is 100% perfect or safe from viruses. and the problem is, Mac users tend to be very bo-chup (a common reason given for switching: "oh i dono how the dam windows PC works so i use a Mac and it works"

    this form of ignorant and apathetic thinking is very dangerous ("i don't know how to use an antivirus program, so i didn't install one. besides, Macs won't get hit by viruses anyway")

    a lot of people are lured by Apple's designs (me included), but like all shiny new machines, attention must be paid to what works under the hood. but i agree Macs do reduce a lot of headaches for the less computer-literate.

    Ahhh... yes.

    Whilst we'll prolly see a surge of Mac users, these are probably not the true warriors and bearer of the Light.
    Expect a lot of threads appearing on other forums like the following:

    - I'd gotten my iBook!
    - This is cool!
    - Try this!

    and when the dust is about to settle...

    - Where to get cheap software for Mac?
    - I don't want to buy original
    - Anyone got lobang?

    I'm not surprised if stuff like this comes up. Or anyone of u here gets hit with PMs like this.
