    I swear I haven't watched Jeopardy in a good 10 years. The first time I heard this acronym was at an old job I had back in 1996. Never really used it much but this thread reminded me of it for some reason.

    Was this on Jeopardy last night?

    It was a clue in "internet acronyms" (or something to that extent) a few hours before your post.

    Helluva coincidence at least.

    Do you mean computer geeks or gamers?

    In the end, this is an argument that neither side can win. You have those that say that those that are using Macs have an elitist mentality and have drank too much Jobs Koolaid, and those that can say that the Windows people have been brainwashed by Bill. My only comment is that you need to walk a mile in a mans shoes before you judge him.
    I've used Mac's as well and for business, they're a good choice. Why? Cause they're harder for computer illiterate employees to mess up. Don't tell me you switched to Mac for versatility. And that is the reason that gamers (the bulk of true geeks in the computer world) think Macs are lame.

    My original reason for switching was that it basically runs Unix. A lot of what I have to do requires using a shell to login to other systems, and it was time to go to a laptop for mobility reasons. Could I have done it with a windows box and a some software? Sure, that's how I did it before, but I have a myriad of other SysAdmins that were raving about OSX, so I gave it a shot.

    My gaming days are long gone. My family and friends that are not computer geeks have been slowly migrated over to Macs and guess what? They don't call me for tech support anymore, because they don't need to. Not 1 has had a spyware of virus problem yet, although I fully expect one to pop up. And now they are starting to do some complex computing that would have taken me hours of hand holding to get them to do (video iChat, making their own movies, garage band, etc.) on a PC with a bunch of after market crap that inevitably wouldn't have been compatible.

    Just brought home last week the HP dv9540us. Dual core 1.5 Centrino, dual 120 GB HD, 17 inch HD screen, GEFORCE 8600 GS graphics card, out the door for 1250. kick @SS machine, powerful, can pretty much run any PC game on MAX graphics settings. It is big and heavy and battery life, if playing games on performance setting is only about an hour. Surfing the net and documents gets u about 2 1/2. Defintly a desktop replacement. LOVE IT
