    I took the plunge today, what a great Father's day present.

    My wife must really love me :)

    Anyway, just wanted to brag a little bit :)

    Felt the same way when I got mine!


    Except for the wife part. And the Father's Day part. But I know how you feel!

    What configuration did you get?

    Went almost all out with the 15"

    2.16Ghz
    1GB
    7200RPM Drive
    100GB
    256MB Video

    I'm liking it...but still doing "updates" right now :( Had over 300MB of updates to download

    Harddrive is getting quite hot right now...kind of annoying, but I'll get used to it.

    Good question...not sure how to check without taking it apart. I'm assuming it is 2, since I didn't request 1.

    I just saw that on my sig :) Should be good now!

    If it only has "DIMM1/Bank 1" showing then its a single chip, if it has "DIMM1/Bank 1" and "DIMM2/Bank 2" then its 2 chips...

    cool... that means that it is easy for you to upgrade to 2 if you want to.

    Congrats.

    Had been the Apple Store over the past few days (sick iMac G5 - constant rebooting - all is fine now after a power supply replacement). And got to drool over the new MB and MPB systems.

    So want one of the new Intel based Mac systems. But will want to wait till OSX 10.5 comes out and Adobe has PSCS for the Intel Mac platform.

    If I had patience, I probably would have done the same ;)
