    And there is really no point comparing Mac and Windows anymore since it is not an apple to apple comparison.
    Haha... I see a hardcore Mac fan here... well, I would love to just run Mac OS X only, but sometimes when you wanna run games like Counter Strike or software like Autocad or Pro/E you need Windoze... I would gladly throw Windoze out of the window if they have such software on Mac...

    That's not true... for me it's Windoze for fun and leisure and Mac for "work" like PS, audio editing, video editing...

    I can see you're having a Mac Pro because either i) you're too rich ii) you want to hook girls.

    Is that how you hook your wife up?

    anybody miss the 'page-up' 'page down' function, when reading long article.

    Or is there other way that Apple can perform the above function that i did not know of. tired
    of scrolling the mouse

    There was once, i show my fren the 'Expose' function, he asked me if could stop doing that. he find it very irritating.

    While surfing internet with Safari, When there is too many window, it get very messy. when u minimise it got worse. Eventually, I switch to Firefox, so that i open new webpage in new tab.

    Mozilla

    till now, i still don't know the trick to create shortcut, except forcing the application to show in the finder.

    I believe that are many tricks and shortcut keys to be comfortable with iBook.

    go to Safari's Prefences. Go to Tab. Then Enabled Tab Browsing.

    Page-up page-down is done using Spacebar and shift-Spacebar... I thot there is a page-up page-down key too? I can do that using fn+(up arrow) and fn+(dn arrow) on my powerbook. Not too sure about the rest of the macs...

    for big macs scrolling keys are up, down, left, right arrow keys.

    if you have mouse use the scroll wheel. shift key+ scroll wheel for left to right scroll.

    Thanks =)
    I have a IMac 21" G5, it crashes as often as I switch it on, it's slow, the cooling system is so bad that it burns the memory card everything 6 months. It's enough to run PS on a 21".

    I have a laptop with Windows XP, it's quite reliable, but you have to keep it clean, uninstall, upgrade, unfragment ... it's huge waste of time, but at least it works not too bad (deeply better than Win98, WinME and previous Windows OS.

    I have a Desktop running Slackware Linux : it just works fine, very fine. Unfortunatly PS does not run on Linux and Gimp misses some very important features. That's definitly the most reliable the fastest.

    why i like osx.

    expose
    2 finger scrolling
    not having to worry about virii

    why i dont like my macbook pro

    it does not have as strong a wireless signal due to the aluminium casing.

    Well, what you can do is use 2 fingers on the trackpad and move downwards... that would help you do scrolling which i think is much more intelligent...

    What we need decides what we buy. One way to determine:
    - what kind of work you need to perform with a computer?
    - what software is needed in your work?
    - do we have to share our work-in-progress and/or final result with others? Are those work-in-progress and final result are paltform neutral?
    - ...

    Find out what one needs before deciding on a platform (Mac or Win), form factore (desktop or laptop) and configuration (CPU, memory, disk storage).

    By the way, I don't install or play games on my work computers, just in case the game is badly written and corrupts my work.

    All those mentioned works for me. Note that it's the 'fn' + arrow keys, and not the Apple/CMD key with arrow keys.
