on Windows Vista
laws of thermodynamics
To sum up...Vista looks pretty, but my graphics card would freak out, as the HP I got less than two years ago only had PCI busses inside, no PCI-Express or AGP. So I got the best ATI graphics card that my computer would handle, which apparently isn't good enough. Also, I'm running low on hard drive space, and it really doesn't make much sense for me to pour any more money into this machine...it's already obsolete in practical terms. Furthermore, i'm not about to plunk down $99 minimum for some pretty graphics and a couple system upgrades that'll slow my machine down even further than it already is...I have a hard enough time running iTunes and any other program (although that's apparently partially the fault of iTunes 7.0.2 being a big ol' memory hog).

So I'm gonna wait until some enterprising Apple dealer like PowerMax starts selling a machine with a big fuck-off hard drive that will dual-boot OS X Leopard and Vista with nary a hiccup. I'm prepared to pay through the nose for that.

Speaking of money. I fiiled my taxes early like a good boy, and the state returns already here, the federal's on the way, and I've been thinking...should I put the money towards a Mac, or towards getting Lasik? Right now I'm leaning towards the Lasik, mainly because there'd be a lasting benefit, and my eyeballs probably won't be obsolete for another 20 years or so...at least until they get bionic eyeballs made. What think you guys?

From what I understand of Lasik, you will have to do it more than once in your lifetime to maintain its effects. (Every 10-15 years, if I remember right.) It would still be a nifty investment.
