    I think that you will thoroughly enjoy your purchase. The iBook is a very solid machine. Is this your first Mac?

    yup, first mac... i have high end pc till now..
    my desktop is a Dual Athlons 2400MP with 2GB of rams.. very nice desktop. dun think i will switching that for a long time.

    i do mainly photoshop, premiere, java programming. and i have a toshiba laptop. well mainly this laptop got crap battery power.. so i look for alternative and decided what i do also fits in the ibook category if not even better in this category, so i decided to get a mac and give it a try.

    Awesome! The one I ordered Tuesday morning hasn't shipped yet, but it also needs a bit more customizing (just 768 RAM and 80G hard drive, though). I'll take this as a good sign that Apple's not too bogged-down and keep my fingers crossed!

    Enjoy that, by the way! I remember how much fun I had with my first iBook two years ago. You're in for a treat. :)

    lol no its just that apple overprices it. most people here buy ram from other places and self install... but really its your choice. :)

    You are now shunned for all eternity. You might be shot if seen with Apple RAM. I suggest running away now and changing your name. I suggest Kenya or Somalia...that is where the other Mac newbies I have scared away have run to.
    Remember the guy in Black Hawk Down who shoots the AK? That isn't a mac user. ;)

    In case you haven't guessed...us "Maccies" (my term for Mac Users, cross between Mac and Trekkie. Actually, a Mac hating friend came up with it) are quite sarcastic.

    Welcome to the Light Side of the Force!!

    Oh, OK. Yeah, I didn't want to bother with installing it myself so I figured I'd just let Apple do it.

    It actually arrived this morning as I was running to an interview! I'm on it right now, and man, is it sweet! It's taking some getting used to with this keyboard, though, as it's a lot more "stiff" than what I'm used to. Nice-looking, all the same!

    *claps hands* Way to go. That is the best move you've ever made in choices for buying a computer.
