BTW- one thing that I absolutely adore about the Mac is the ease with which I can import audio cd’s. You pop the disc in, press import CD, and then have a sandwich.
Also, I have noticed that the cd reader is exceptionally good. I threw in some cd’s that survived literally every beer bash I threw from 1992-1996 while in undergrad, and it somehow managed to read them, despite the fact that there were scratches and gouges and unidentified substances that could not be removed with anything this side of Mule Kick Drain Cleaner.
My old Dag, Beasties Boys, P-Funk, and White Zombie live again (and surprisingly ebough, my old Adcom amp and pre-amp Paradigm speakers still are in top shape, despite being close to 16 years old). I will let you decide if that is a good thing.
