Thanks to y'all and your helpful advice, I've got a Lenovo ThinkPad SL Series on its way to me from Newegg now. I'm proud to say that over 60% of it was paid for by proceeds from recent jewelry sales.

4GB memory
500GB hard disk
Intel Core 2 Duo T6670 2.2G
Under $500 even with shipping, whee

This iBook G4 is still useful, though. It's petite and convenient. LINUX BOX? Yes I do think so.

Thanks! I was getting packing tape at Staples today, and the chatty computer geek gal said "Lenovos are like the BMWs of notebooks." I thought that was cute. :)

Now to pick my anti-virus software, and eventually pick up an external hard-drive....

*giggles* YAY DRUGS!! wait, are you high, or just groggy...

this obsolete Mac I'm on will become My Little White Linux Box. Waket said he'd help get it going with Ubuntu. and then I can learn how to use Linux and be cool like the rest of my technogeek friends. *sigh* one of my dreams will finally come true...

I know exactly what I want in an ext. HD so I'll be bargain-shopping until I'm satisfied that I've gotten a ridiculous discount on one. :D BACK DAT HD UP BAYBEE!! (not high, just overtired, oooOOOoo)
