    I've being wanting to switch from the dark side (PC) since dec 2006.

    In summer 2007, when apple update MBP plus free iPod deal, I took the plunge! But I was having screen issue even after replacement. In the end, I returned it and decided to wait for next update.

    Early 2008, MB Air was introduced but nothing significant for MBP. So, I waited for summer free ipod deal again. But no update in summer, and at that time there's rumour going on about new design. So, I waited again.

    In Oct 2008, finally, a new design!! 3 days after announcement, I made my purchase of 2.8 MBP,....

    But,....... 1 week later,..... someone broke into the car and stole it during my business trip!!!

    I was heart broken,... broke,... unable to make another purchase for a while,......

    Ever since, I've being checking Craigslist for cheap, gently used MBP,....

    Until last week,.... i finally bought my 2.4 MBP.....

    I should have bought a Mac long time ago,... it's really a joy using Mac!

    Moral of the story: Don't wait if you're financially ready!,.... I could have being enjoying a Mac since Dec 2006,....

    Wow! All that waiting and it gets stolen within a week. Glad you finally have a Mac and hopefully one that doesn't get stolen.

    I've being coming to this forum almost like 3-4 times a week since Dec 2006 to keep myself updated on new apple products, rumours. June 2007 when I was ready to get my MBP and want to post to ask questions.

    I must say, there're a lot of nice people is this forum who really want to help others!

    Thank you all for being so helpful!! :)

    PS. For me, I think PC as the dark side.

    Enjoy, and look after it with your life!! :)

    Welcome to the real dark side! We Mac users are much more evil than Windows users, that's why in reality we are the dark side!





    No, just kidding (kinda ...) :p
    Sad to see you had your Mac stolen within a week though! I would probably have gone so crazy (like when my lovely 2G Nano drowned. I still miss it even though I have the 4G <3)
    Anyway, like you said, there are some people here that actually want to help others and not just flame and/or complain :p so feel free to ask if you need anything!

    I wonder how many people that get their macs stolen out of their car-A. have it sitting out in the open for everyone to see or B. have one or more of those apple stickers on their window. Apple sticker w/ stickers that came with your stereo = contents listing
