A Mac/Win-DOS/whatever personal computer didn't do anything for me; certainly not enough to justify the cost. It wasn't until I entered industry in '96 and started making some decent scratch that I could 1) afford one and 2) justify one. I'm probably not the only person in that category. Once I found out that I could run Linux on a Mac and could dual-boot, that was it. And now that OS X is here, oo mama ...
