I still cry when I think about using those little round hockey-puck things they tried to pass off as mice. Maybe its just a little too much to ask for people to not think of their school's computers when thinking about Macs. Would be like asking Vietnam vets to not think about "charlies" or their friends dying when you talk about jungles or asian things. Still, some people are just too closed minded when it comes to computers.
I have MACs at my college... but only a handfull off them. I've used one before because it was the only computer in the design center hocked up to the A3 scanner. They are full tower cases that I think look so cool! And I don't see why everyone hates them... it seemed simple enough to use.
Well that would be because the G4 PowerPCs are nice. Much better than the crappy old iMacs that schools used to have. Most have changed out the iMacs for eMacs now, which are in all essence the same thing.
