Yes, but having to have yet another piece of hardware to carry
(when the point of having a notebook is to have mobility) is
simply silly, to say the least.

Today, (after some discussions in my family) I was thinking if
it was a good thing or not to get my iBook. Aside from it
being expensive, and even though having 128MB more of memory
than when I got the iBook (I now have 256MB) Apple's own
operating system (even Jaguar) is *quite* slow with this
If I did know that I could barely play some MP3s while having
a MUA and a Web browser open with 256MB of memory, I would
probably not have gotten this computer. In this sense, I
regret purchasing it, but now it is too late. :-(
I can't even play DVDs with Apple's own player in a
deinterlaced manner! :-( And Linux + X is so much faster than
Jaguar that it is not even fun to start to make comparisons.
This will teach me that one should be really careful about
following advices from O'Reilly, Slashdot and places with wide
coverage of Apple's material.
Well, at least the battery usage is not bad.
Sorry for the off-topic rant. :-(
