Ahh, for some reason I read it as MacBook Pro not Mac Pro. Now it completely makes sense as to how you could get to $18k.

You gotta admit, with that configuration, it would be fuckin bitchin...

If they come out with an iPad with cellular connection for data/cell (I would use my bluetooth, not hold it to my ear), I would consider it

The smartest design I saw for a tablet computer was a concept computer I saw on a website: it's two tablet computers held together with a plastic clamshell, so you could have the convenience of a laptop with the keyboard space not occupying the screen, plus having the screen angled while you type. If you wanted to grab a tablet PC, you would just unlock it from the plastic clamshell. Pretty neat.

Don't ask me where I saw that, it was one of my geek websites and I'm sure I'm never going to find it again. Those websites are a pain in the ass to navigate. Prob gizmodo

Short rant for no good reason...  Let me first say that  I love most Apple products.  I use them every day at work and home.  Seriously, I own way too many of them and have for years.

I am, however, to the point of frustration with my iPhone where I want to smash it into little bits and pay to get out of my contract and get a different phone.  Ever since iOS 4 it's been a piece of sh*t.  No matter what I try, or what support suggests, no change.  At this point it feels like a forced upgrade to go to a 4g and I don't want to give them any more of my money.

Giles - Don't let this shade your interest in getting a desktop.  Through work, home use, & family, we've gone through dozens of machines and they've all been great.

I have just become a victim of this. My problems did not start until the same time. Granted I had the 3G but still...  I understand where you are coming from.

Oh well I am wrong. Feels like a whole new network! I do not keep up with phones or the technology surrounding them as much as I would like but thank you for the knowledge/ heads up.

I went from iPhone 3G to iPhone 4 also (pre-ordered at apple.com and managed to get it day before release, that was a happy day) :). The iPhone 4 is so much faster, everything seems faster (data speeds included). My 3G was 2 years old, and was time for an upgrade. So far I've been quite happy with the iPhone 4. Proximity sensor issue being one that still nags, but supposedly they're fixing that... other than that, it's a beautiful piece of technology. :)

You mean besides what I used to do which was to almost snap it in half between my hands??? Might have to do something like that with my 3G...

I really only use instagram for the filters, I don't really use the social / sharing functionality of it
