Congratulations, and don't forget to ask here if there is anything you want to find out. Look through the forums, there are loads of people who were just like you and asked for tips like which programs are needed, and just cool tricks. First thing to try once you're up and running: Ctrl-alt-command-8.

I had never tried this before. I just tried it for the first time when I read this post. It's really cool.

I am also from the UK and ordered a 2.0Ghz Macbook with standard Ram and upgraded HD to 80gb - I will update ram myself.

I also ordered on October Tuesday 3rd but mine shipped thursday 4Th and it says i can expect delivery on the 19Th.

In the UK you cannot get express delivery like our American cousins can - mores the pity :-(

regards Simon

I dont get why everyone thinks this is 'cool' :rolleyes: all it does is mess up your nice looking OS. Although the actual application for it is for increased contrast for visually imapired users.
