I went to an Apple store that recently opened not far from my house and walked out with a 14" ibook. Can't give much of an opinion on it yet since it's only about a half hour old and all I've done it update it, ordered 1 gig of memory from Crucial and now typing this. One thing I've noticed is that it's slower than I had expected but i have no doubt that the extra memory will help in that area. It's always exciting to have a new computer and a new OS to learn and play with. Anyway, thank you to everyone who has answered any of my questions while I considered this purchased. These forums have been incredibly helpful for me and many others. Thank you again. Now it's time to scour the forums for software recomendations.
