    Well I finally got my first Mac today. I decided to start off with the 13" Macbook Pro. I know a lot of people recommended to wait on this purchase, but i have been using my new computer about an hour now and i must say i am very happy so far. I have been wanting a Mac for years now, ever since I got my 5th Gen iPod. So far I could not be happier. :)

    I felt like the Pro in it's current configuration was plenty for me. Hopefully this will not be my last Mac.

    I received my first Mac for Christmas as well. Upgrade or no coming the in future, I am ecstatic! My wife totally surprised me with this. Knowing that I wanted a new laptop, she on her own went out and purchased my 13" MacBook Pro 2.53 with 4 gigs of ram. I didn't have the heart to tell her that I would have been happy with the base model. She just figured that I could use a little more power. I have already set it up with Windows 7 Home Premium (I still need some windows stuff) and everything I need to be productive. This is one fine piece of equipment, not a single flaw and well built.

    I hope you enjoy your new Mac as much I as am enjoying mine.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Thanks for the replies. I have been coming to this site for some time getting help with my other Apple products. I am very proud to be a member of this community. I think I enjoy the community of Mac as much as I do my actual Mac. I have always gotten great help here and Mac's have a unique community that no matter how hard Microsoft tries to copy they cannot copy this. Thanks

    Welcome!

    Even though I'm a windows PC and server tech by trade I made the switch 2 years ago when it became painfully obvious windows wasn't capable of doing what I needed in a computer so I hesitantly switched to mac thinking I made a very expensive mistake...

    ...boy was I wrong. Now I don't even own a windows machine and have since switched my whole family and some of my friends to mac. I couldn't be happier :)

    Curious to know what you were struggling to get accomplished under windows.

    Personally, I was long-time UNIX admin who never embraced windows. Went from DOS to OS/2 to Linux and only begrudgingly allowed the wife a windows install (kids all used Linux as well). I had been semi-interested in OS X once it was released due to its UNIX roots (had no use whatsoever for MacOS prior to that), however, the cost of the systems were a stumbling block for me. It was the release of the (then) sub-$500 Mac mini that finally made me take the plunge, and I never looked back.

    i've been using a MBP for about 14 months now and I never missed windows and the rest of the PC world. Now when I am forced to use a PC at a library or something, it's like i'm on some horribly outdated prehistoric device - like a rotary phone. It's an apt analogy because there are all these extra steps to do stuff in windows.
