Apple Not too long ago, I sold my iBook, right after the new MacBook was announced. I planned to buy that same MacBook somewhere this summer; however, I started to doubt. I had second thoughts. Let me explain why I decided to not buy a new Mac, but instead opt for a used G4 PowerMac. Note: After being absent for a week, here is another Sunday Eve Column.

You bought a white-box laptop!? I'm sorry, but that's a stupid buy.

What will happen when the inverter breaks and your screen goes black, who is going to repair it?

What happens when your keyboard breaks and you cannot buy a new Z key?

What happens when your DVD drive stops working and you won't find perfect-fit replacement, are you going to buy an external unit or maybe you will buy a drive which stands out of the frame?

Never buy a white-box laptop. Never. The moment you have a problem, the moment you will be pissed off.
