Frank,

I have been wondering the same thing. I have never even considered a MAC. But now that I don't own a business with networks and lots of people, the paradigm changes.

I am also finding that a Mac might offer me more tools regarding photography and music.

Frankly, while I've been noodling about the hardware (value vs similar PC) the iMac presentation with the iLife Update is what's pushing me over the edge. The new Garage Band really looks interesting, and I've played a bit with movie editing and I think the new iMovie is probably just the ticket to send me into an incredible time sink black hole of fun :)

I am, however, likely to hold off til October and the release of the next OS - to get it all at once. There's no pressing need for the new hardware now.

It would have been a smart move - had MS not sold it shortly afterwards....

This is a fairly old article, but there is a recent link to it , so I thought I'd chime in.

The potential gain I came up with, considers the 2005 stock split that I believe occurred before this article.
That would be a cool 36+ Billion dollar gain.
Now if they sold it at the 200 dollar peak, well, thats more money than anyone I hang out with,
