Hello guys. You have helped me out greatly with this program I'm writing. Not only did the postings directly related to my questions help, but so did the postings that offered help on problems that other people had. Now I was wondering do any of you know how I could get a GOOD deal on a new Mac. Right now I have a Macintosh LC 575 with a 500 meg hardrive and 32 megs of RAM. However it's slow and hard to work with. And also its like totally screwy. About 75% of the time when I start up it gives me a 'death face.' It's like at least 6 years old. And I also love playing games, and the only good games out there are for PowerPC only! So if any of you know how I could get a discount or deal on a new mac, could you let me know? Thank you. PS Macs rule and I have never ever thought of purchasing a computer other than a mac. I also hat e how this college campus near me offers NO programming classes that are Macintosh based... that really bites!
