    Well, I finally did it! I ordered my 15"/1.67 GHz/128MB VRAM/Superdrive Powerbook today, with airport express station for wireless printing, MS Office and I also put it an order at newegg for a 1gig stick of ram.

    This is my first Mac, but unfortunately I don't have a unique switcher story. I just basically witnessed firsthand how awesome the Mac is as a personal computer, and that was enough to convince me. I am so excited, now I get to play the "check the apple website, then UPS tracking website every 5 minutes" game while on the company clock, :)

    My fiancee has already prepared herself to be alone for the next few weeks and to be in, "can't touch the new tech toy" mode. I tend to think I can be a bit anal sometimes with my new electronics.

    I will post pictures as soon as possible!

    *panic* JUST ABOUT?!?!?!? What are you saying?!

    :p just kidding

    BTW if you can't tell........I'm bored, this PB needs to get here soon.

    How long should it take for it to ship? at 1500 today it went to "Sent to Manufacturing", and the expected ship date is 9/8/05 which means it will spend a week in manufacturing! Unacceptable! I hope that isn't the case anyways. Surely it can't take a week to put in a different video card.

    Good, I thought I was the only person that turns into a prick when I get something new. I just got a new iMac G5. I got it 4 days after my wife delivered our first child. Quite a juggling act I'm performing right now. ;)

    Congratulations! I just switched from Windows about 3 months ago (got a iMac G5). Have fun with your notebook! Apple is much better.
