for the best price, wait until just after they announce a new product, at the developers conferences.
I'll go with the negatives, because otherwise I'd be writing for six months.
Power cords for laptops - oh my goodness yes, they are crap. We have three for each laptop we've had because they wear out.

To be fair, in 23 years of our family using macs, between all of us we've had a couple of catastrophic crashes. Every few months I try to remember to restart my computer rather than just sleep/wake endlessly, just because it seems to make it run better.
Oh, and firefox freezes and needs to be force-quitted relatively often - about once a month.
|Do you Mac people use antivirus software at all? I was on the Apple forums reading yesterday and kept coming across something free called ClamXAV (www.clamxav.com).
A friend who's had his Macbook for more than a year has NEVER used anything. Think he uses the firewall that came on the Macbook but that's it!
Nope, just the firewall it came with. Although my mother got a virus once a few years ago. nasty things. Hope we never get one.
|My ONLY gripe is that the individual files in iPhoto can't be accessed on their own through Finder. (Mac's version of windows explorer.) So to upload photos to Snapfish, I have to copy them to a folder on the desktop. That is the only thing I wish was different.
You can, they're filed under the date they were taken, inside your personal photos folder. I don't like that, either, but I do like that I just plug the camera in and it downloads for me.
I'm drooling over that leopard tour!
