I don't think I'll be looking at a mac anytime soon - there's no shops around here that sell them. But I certainly will look at Ubuntu again - there was an install CD on the front of a magazine a while back.
I've never seen any of the newer Macs in real life, only ads and websites etc about them. The last Mac I actually saw "in the flesh" was a ][e - one of them came in to my shop with a blown power supply. Couldn't get parts for it. As I recall, Apple wanted more for the power supply than you could buy a whole PC for.
Still, I'm optimistic
- this year is going to be GREAT for me
- once I've got my house, my Mercedes van and my BMW motorbike, I'll look at finding a Mac shop and see one of the new ones...
