So I did it, I finally did it. After asking about the now $999 MacBook earlier, I went to the Apple store tonight, hoping that upon seeing the new Aluminum MacBooks, I would hate the design and trackpad, forcing me to use an older model (or the cheaper model at least). Needless to say... I FREAKING LOVED IT. The black and silver designed looked GREAT, so much better in person. The pictures do it no justice. The trackpad is amazing. The "click anywhere" part is awesome. However, I didn't know until playing with it that it still has a left and right click portion at the bottom...so if I want, I can use it just like any other notebook. This thing is great. I haven't done anything so far besides get iChat working and head right on over to MacRumors, who's posts inspired me to re-try a Mac. Tomorrow I have a joyous evening ahead of installing Office 08, and putting all my stuff into iTunes, hot dang! Thus I conclude this happy fun rant with 2 simple questions. 1.) Any fun/useful/interesting software I should be downloading to put on this? I'm new to Macs. 2.) I'm contemplating installing the spare 64GB Solid State Drive I have sitting around...how much room does the OS X install take up? Curious if I should install this drive, or not bother due to room constraints.
