I am so excited. This is my first new Apple computer in my life. I am going down to the Apple store today to buy it and visit my sister who lives down there. I plan on getting the mid-level MacBook, with 2 gigs of RAM, and thinking of upgrading the HD, but will most likely do that, if at all, later. I plan on taking pics of every step, and I'll upload them here. I am so excited.

On top of the laptop I plan on getting several things. A nice HP printer($100 off), an iPod Nano for my mom, iWork 08 Family Pack, .Mac, Delicious Library(will likely need to buy that online), a case, maybe a game or two(that is not graphics intensive).

Overall, I am so excited and just wanted to share my excitement with all of you!

Currently in the Apple store, messing around with the new iMac. About to get my new MacBook. Just a very short while left. The new keyboard = love.

This guy sounds like APPLEFAN8's twin brother of a different Mother.

I think a new policy needs to be implemented, all "newbies" retain for 6 months the "newbie" moniker and are kept in the same "newbie" thread where they can get everything out of their system and then after 6 months they are promoted to the general forums.

And yes, I was a "newbie" once as well and understand how exciting it can be, all the way back to my Apple II+ and my first Macintosh 128K in 1984 with the wide carriage ImageWriter.

Somewhere interesting
That makes me want to invest in a .mac, but I have no idea what I'd use it for!

I wish Apple had an e-mail service, like email@apple.mac. That'd be cool. :(



Is it okay to rename your HD icon on your desktop?
It's perfectly okay to rename your hard drive. And, I think they do offer an email account with .Mac...something along the lines of "somebody@mac.com, not sure though, never been interested on .Mac myself.

Wow. Something's a bit odd here, Yamisky0.

You have my dream MacBook config :)

And I bought that same exact printer last night. I love it.


Enjoy your MacBook :D
