    Well, I was wearing it the other day cuz my hair is getting pretty long.

    My brother saw it, and he thought it was cool. So we're both wearing it now...

    Did you boot it up before you installed the RAM?

    Yeah because if you did then this isn't exactly a chronological unboxing of some new toys because you did not document a step that took place prior to the installation of new ram. That in it of itself is an important step that took place. Nice going.
    :p

    Well there are a few occasions here where the user decided to replace the hard drive or RAM in their Macbook before they even did a DOA check. :eek:

    Did it ship that way or did they break it?

    GREAT now we're back to it really being a chronological photos of unboxing new toys. I'm glad for purposes of accuracy that this was the case.

    However if it were DOA I'd take the ram out and send it back. I'm guessing they won't really notice one way or another.

    How come I didnt see the picture of the bottle to capture the new mac smell? Its a smell that goes away after apple updates their lines and makes your product look liek crap compared.. If you bottled teh smell you could close your eyes and release teh smell outta the bottle and recapture that new mac feeling.

    Just wish I woulda thought of that when I unboxed my macbook

    Thank you =)

    You're getting yours soon also? There's a black MBP rumoured to be coming out soon. I will be the jealous one by then =)

    Don't forget your chronological unboxing.
