I am in Graphic Design in College so all we use are Mac's. Not positive on the specs but in 2 labs we have high-end G4's and we just got a whole new lab of G5's the other day. I haven't used them yet but I will for sure. The rumour is that they are incredibly fast and are great to work with so I'm going to have to get over to that lab ASAP to test them out.

*Note* I use a PC at home. Heh, not fully converted yet...

i went to a college recently... just to visit. well, it was also close to the only apple store around here, so i figured i could play with some nice hardware and make my parents happy by making them think i was considering going to that college.

anyway, point is, this college only used dell's. no apple's or even unix boxs around. they deny them access on the net. yet i saw a kid with a pbook *cough*

anyway, they only run pc's running good ol' windows xp.

and they are the only college that offers 'computer programming with a track in computer security". i just thought that was funny. computer security on winxp? yea right...

How can a school deny access to the internet to a specific type of computer or OS? That doesn't make any sense.

He probably worded that wrong. You can deny computers access by MAC address.

I'm aware of that, but what I meant is how can a school JUSTIFY denying access to the internet based on what type of computer or OS you choose to use? To me, that sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Now, denying WINDOWS machines access to the internet, I could almost see that, given Windows recent rash of network disabling viruses, etc.

I have an older PowerMac G4 450MHz with 768MB Ram and 20GB Hard Drive. My wife uses it more than I do. My main computer is in my sig. (I'm a gamer! :p )

Anyways, I love Macs and I'm planning on getting a Powerbook around the beginning of next year.
