    Don't you mean, "the freedom from windows"?

    Welcome to MacRumors I'm sure you will have many enjoyable years with Apple and your new Powerbook.

    Actually, I just ordered it this Monday (March 10) so I should have it some time next week, and I can't waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiitttttt!!!! But just to make the wait a little more bearable, I sort of took posession of my sister's Powerbook (she got hers herself only last month) until it gets here!

    Congratulations and welcome Flyer!

    That's a great machine. I'm sure you'll be quite happy.

    You must post 500 times to be able to use an avatar. Please remember that those should be 500 meaningful posts, not spam. :)

    Getting away from Windows may be difficult at times, so be sure to search the forums for questions you may have. Why beat your head against the wall figuring it out when it's already been discussed here. :)
