    Well, I did it. Went to a nearby Apple store and bought a Macbook.:D Best purchase I've made in a long time. This thing is awesome. I have to say that this forum is what put me over the edge and made me buy it. Reading about everyone's love for their Macs, I couldn't resist any longer.

    Welcome to the Mac!

    Exposé and Spaces, the first of many new "Oh, that's cool..." moments that await you.

    Enjoy...

    Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the Mac and MR communities. In means of what made me switch, it had to be all the great features of Leopard and all the issues I was having with Microsoft.

    it's neat to see people excited about features that a little more jaded users take for granted. Expose IS pretty cool, when all you've had is WinDoze.
