My new PM arrived today. I have an iBook so this is not my first Mac. I liked the iBook enough to replace my Athlon 800 PC. My first impression after taking it out of the box was how awful the kb was. If you don't include front USB ports at least include a reasonable length of USB cable. It barely stretches in front of the machine. The mouse? eek. It has a short cable which is ok since it can plug into the KB but I was not brave enough to try it (It felt like it clicked from the bottom and would be really annoying so I use a USB mouse I have). I was also taken aback by how easy it was to install memory. Pull the tab and there is everything! I put in two 512 MB sticks brining the total ram up to 1.25 GB. It is louder than my PC but not appreciably so. It is super speedy. It blows my 600 Mhz G3 iBook away! I downloaded and installed the iPhoto update before the iBook even booted up. The big test will come this weekend when I move all my stuff over from my PC. Anyhow, I am impressed.
