apples are over rated in my opinion. i've had them before and i don't think there is much difference. well, not with what i use it for anyway. but anyways:

i'm pretty satisfied with my laptop as it is. it may not be the best, but it's still pretty sweet. but i guess i could use a pimped out desktop:

i'm not that picky though. so i only need:
1.8 mghz pentium 4
2 gbs of ram
2 120 gb hdd

see.. i'm not too picky. i just want a cool case that's all. i was actually looking at 'em the other day. soooo tempting. but i can't really afford it.

as far as peripherals go:
normal speakers are fine by me
i'd need a flat screen moniter, the same color as the case.
wireless optical mouse, same color as the rest of computer
wireless keyboard, same color as the rest
writing tablet, that i may be getting soon if all goes well

yep. that's all i want/need.
