    I just got my first brand new Apple product. My sister got an iPod shuffle too, but I love my computer soooooo much. It's quick, snappy, and has all the updates!

    I feel incredibly sorry for you with that one. I couldn't stand mine. I hope you got the 2nd version of it.

    Cheers on the new computer, though!

    I just can't get over the fact that he bought AppleCare for me. We got $50 off AppleCare, so all together it costed $1200 + tax, but we got my sister a $15 itunes card, iPod Shuffle 512MB. BTW the iTunes card won't accept the code and its been activated and all that.

    I just burned a DVD+R with my music on it. YAY - burned a DVD on my moms PC.

    We have a Wireless Able DSL Router, so I'm like walking all over the house using the internet. And Airport, it picked up sooooo many Wi-Fi spots in Provo Utah. I was like getting any/everything. I even loaded up apple.com on one that wasn't passlocked.

    Nice purchase, i got the same a few weeks ago and i am loving it, i'd reccomend upgrading the RAM to 1gb it really pay's off, but if you dont have the $$$ 512mb will do......

    Congrats,

    I had to endulge myself a bit so I bought an HP Wireless Rechargeable Mouse. As for the RAM, I'm not going to upgrade it till I really really need it. I'm good with 512MB.

    Thats exactly what I am planning on doing (trying it with the stock 512MB DDR333 before upgrading). Glad to hear that you got your new 12" iBook G4 and are lovin' it. :)

    I am still waiting for mine to ship. :(
