    My parents bought me a Refurb 20" iMac C2D. I have to pay them off with xmas-bday money over the next 1/2 year, but I'm really excited. It came today but I'm not allowed to open it until Christmas Day. It's hard knowing that there is a (almost) brand new iMac sitting right there, waiting to be used, while you're typing away on a PC. :D

    I could ask for one (like last year) but I sure as hell ain't getting one lol. For something like that, my parents/grandparents said to "go and earn the money yourself. You'll appreciate it more." I'm getting a job after Christmas break is over. It's 3 weeks long! :eek: :D

    I'm certainly not getting a computer for Christmas (I'm surprised anyone does...that seems so expensive for a Christmas gift) but I did mention that a gift card to the Apple Store would be nice. I'm planning to get a new MacBook or MBP sometime in the spring, so the gift card will go toward that if I get one.

    I won't be getting one as a gift for christmas.
    I will probably be getting one when the santarosa's are released early next year. Hopefully it will be the ever rumored ultra portable ;)
    I am not sure if I will have to pay for it or my parents will chip in. I assume it will be ~AU$300 from each to go towards it leaving me a bit over half to pay.

    yeah, I didn't really expect many people to be getting one/receiving one for sure on Christmas Day, but I know it happens at times and I was just wondering if anyone on here could be one of the lucky few. :) I actually know a lot of people offline that receive their laptops for the Christmas before they head out to college.

    hdsalinas & psycoswimmer - congrats!

    katie ta achoo - how thoughtful! :)

    anyone else?

    well, kinda. got the new macbook on monday as a graduation from college pesent (wanted it here on saturday, but oh well), but since graduation was so close to christmas, i can consider it an early present to myself.

    so i peeked a bit early for christmas, but just in time for the graduation.

    i asked for the apple for a graduation present since summer, had to purchase it with my own money though.

    furcalchick - oh, so you bought it for yourself as a graduation and Christmas present? That's cool! What all did you get on the Macbook?

    Cassie - I know what you mean w/ the RAM! I'll be moving all the way up from just 256 MB of RAM when I get my MBP! :D

    i got the 2ghz white c2d and maxed out the ram to 2 gb, since the ram prices have dropped with the last update. i got a bag for it and a bit of a setup for it if i want to boost the sound or hook it up to an external monintor. i wanted to get a optical external mouse in case i wanted to get it hooked up for road trips and the such.

    i'm still fooling around with it a bit, since it's my first ever mac. no way i was going to that vista and it's ilk.

    i wanted it here saturday really, but it came late...but since my graduation was so close to christmas, i decided to open it when it came in the mail. was planned out for graduation.

    I desperately want/need a Mac laptop, but Apple don't make anything that's quite right for me yet. Had I have been a Mac user in the days of old it'd have been a 12" PB for me.

    So, for now, no Christmas Mac for me. Still, lets see what happens in January :p

    Gift for me...

    I got myself a basic Mini (1.6GHZ Core Duo). My iBook G4's (1GHz) hard drive is maxed out and encoding videos for my iPod was taking forever...

    Encoding videos is quick! Liking it:p

    I'll have no idea until that fat man comes down my chimney, eats the cookies we leave out for him, drops crumbs all over the place, spills the milk and farts just before heading back up the chimney. :p

    Not for Christmas per se, but perhaps money to put towards one after Leopard comes out.

    And I did ask for a gift card too...but that will probably be a relatively small amount, so it might go toward iPod accessories or maybe iLife '07, if it has something I can't live without.

    No, but I'm thinking I may just have to ask for a belated gift once 10.5 is out...

    i dont think id get another present for the rest of my life if my parents bought me a mac. we have 5 kids in my family so birthdays have also been the bigger gift times. christmas has been more about food and family.
