Hello Ed,

Yes, the college stores have it but the local Apple Store will honor the
education pricing too.

Thanks for the help.

Johnny

Hi Don,

Retirement! You and Deehan. I saw Mike about a year ago at HPN. He was
flying one of those dwarf or fake Gulfstreams.




Reckon he can get any crustier ? <G>

Thanks for all the advice. I knew there would be some half hearted Mac followers around here somewhere...<g>




Well, we don't want to make too big a fuss. Otherwise the smart guys might catch on. <G>

If you'd be happy with the previous generation take a look at the Apple refurb offerings. The same warranty as new but a lot less expensive, and usually even better than the education discounts.

Jerry,

>>Mine also has the "programmer switch"!!<<

I think the SE30 has it too. A mighty 20MB drive, and *8* MB RAM <G>. Still worked, last time I booted it, but somehow the Radius Color Pivot monitor went missing in some move or another ;-)

Johnny,

Seems like most of the Apple dealers rarely give much more of a deal than just buying from Apple.

I've had very good luck with their refurb units. Go to store.apple.com and scroll down on the right to the red SAVE tag. There's a 15in MacBook Pro for $1350 which has the same warranty as a new one. I don't think the ed disc are any better.

Also, there's a strong thought to get the extended warranty (something I never do, except for the Mac). It not only gives you the hardware warranty, but you can call for tech support anytime, and they are pretty helpful (better than most other computer support).

I'm currently using a 15in PB G4, which I bought that way. Great machine. My partner has one, too. We tried the 17 and found it just too awkward for travel and it's a lot more money. We both have desk monitors for home/office use that work very well. (you can set up a dual monitor, if you want).

I've got several Macs (some for my print shop), just bought a Intel IMac 20, which is a lot of machine for the $ and will probably go the MacBook Pro 15 next year.

Also have a few PCs, not nearly the quality or fun.

Jonny-

I second what Larry is saying about buying from Apple... I've always bought directly from them (resellers dont' give much of a margin)... plus the refurb units are great!

I just listed what I still have on hand. I left out the platforms that I used but sold when upgrading. Let's see, along the way were ...

Performa 6200, PowerMac 7300, PowerBook 1400c, PowerBook 3400c, iMac DV 400 (strawberry), iMac 400 (indigo), iMac 600 (graphite) plus a couple others I can't specifically recall model numbers for.

... but alas, you're right, no SE30!

Whoa color monitor. That is too high tech for me.
