    On the eve of every MacWorld (and sometimes the weeks leading up to them) I always get that giddy feeling I used to get on Christmas Eve when I was eight years old and praying I'd find a GI Joe headquarters under the tree the next morning (For the record: best Christmas ever!!!).

    MacWorld Eve also makes me remember some of the previous MacWorld events (and other release events). Some of my favorites were:

    - iMac G4
    - iPod (any generation jump, mini, nano, etc.)
    - PowerMac G5
    - iMac G5
    - Intel announcement (although I never thought I'd say that)

    Yeah, I'm a geek...

    So what are some of your favorite MacWorld moments? What were some of your biggest letdowns (and I don't mean the repeated lack of a G5 Powerbook!)?
    :p

    Well, since I have only been an "Apple Addict" for 7 months, I would have to say the iPod Photo. Because it totally redefined the iPod, and the direction it was (and is) heading in.

    Mac Mini was pretty cool for me:) Also the nano, because he did all of these size comparisons.

    I don't have a favorite yet, since I have been a Mac user for less than two years. This is my second Macworld I will be experiencing as an actual Mac user, though. The Mac mini amazed me last year. Also, I jumped back in time sometime last year and watched the MWSF 2004 keynote where the iMac G5 was unveiled, and I remember being totally amazed by what Apple is capable of. Ever since then I have been an addict. :D

    My first one was the "lamp" iMac...Still have the free Newsweek cover framed in my office. But this year I'm more ready. I'll sit a LOT closer, and have the camera at the ready.
