Went to Best Buy last night and they do honor the teacher discount, give the free iPod Touches, and do 6 months same as cash. This is probably going to be my best bet. As for the fence, we are getting some estimates this week.

Spoke too soon. Wife and I talked it over again and our first thing is going to be the fence no matter what. This will take a nice chunk out of our savings but the wife doesn't want to wait until Spring time to do the fence. Looks like the Mac and the dog won't be around any time soon.

Oh well . . . Guess I'll have to deal with the good ol' Vostro for a little while longer. Whoopie! Maybe I'll have to try and get OS X working on the Vostro again and see how well it works. Last time I tried, I had everything but shut down/sleep working.

Not really. Installed iDeneb v1.3 (10.5.5) under vmware with close to no problems (except it being *extremely* slow, even with 2x E5345 and 16GB of ram, though VT is disabled, and that could speed things up)...

That said, In about three weeks I should have a nice new MBP 17" lying here on my desk

I couldn't get OS X working very well on my Vostro and I could not get any virtualization to work whatsoever. I guess I'll just leave OS X on my netbook and just roll with it. I've been using Linux Mint x64 on my Vostro ever since and it's been great. It may be quite a while now before I ever get a Macbook Pro lol. Oh well, maybe the whole OSx86 project will get better, even with Snow Leopard release.

Snow Leopard was released yesterday. From doing a little reading at the MSI Wind community, SL is almost 100% for Wind owners! Maybe we'll see an ISO of SL for the Wind hit "the usual sites" in the next month or two. Can't wait!

Not sure. I know that it's the first OS X version to be mostly 64-bit (I think the first with a 64-bit kernel?).
