I ordered my MacBook online last tuesday and it arrived yesterday Oct 2! This thing is awesome. I'm really impressed with the performance of it. I got the white 2.0 with 1gig of ram and an 80 gig hard drive. After transferring my 30 gig itunes library, I've only got about 30 gigs left, but that's plenty for now. In the future I'll upgrade the drive and ram. This is my first purchased mac, but I've used many others so I'm not new to the OS, but I'm rusty. Any tips should I try? Any particular software I should download?
