    So I finally ordered my PB. It will be my first Mac. I ordered it Saturday night. It shipped sometime early today.

    Anyone know what the Custom SW I is? The only thing I added was the 80gb drive.

    Since it says Not Applicable, it probably just means you didn't order any custom software. My iMac G5 order page has 065-4681 (very close to the number for Custom SW I in your post) with Not Applicable next to it. On some of the pages while I was ordering it, it said Bluetooth Module - None in the list of specifications, so it probably just includes that stuff in the list whether you're buying it or not.

    It would be filled if you had ordered FCP, or something else.
    Congrats on your new mac:)

    Using my keen powers of deductive reasoning, I come to the conclusion that Custom SW I means Custom software installation. Since you didn't order any other software from apple, none will be installed, i.e. Final Cut.

    great choice for a first mac. I bought the exact same setup back in late June and could not be happier. Also, I highly recommend upgrading to at least 768 mb of ram. It really compliments the faster harddrive and makes apps load much faster.

    I've had the same machine since May, and I love it. In all honesty, I didn't see any difference between 256 MB and 768 MB. Of course, I do nothing intensive on this computer, so that's probably why. It's a great machine, and I hope you enjoy it. :)
