    I may be the only one, but I find myself constantly checking the various mac and technology websites looking for news on any possible updates. Sometimes its every 10 minutes on my iphone when I'm at work. Anyone else doing the same?

    I just check Page 1 MacRumors once or twice a day. If I hit Forum Spy and it's spammed with "OMG Appple Store is Down!!!1" then I might have some more interest.

    The only obsession that I have is making sure that people stop believe that Apple will give them Blu-ray.

    Or a better GPU than the 9650M GT.

    I don't think any amount of linking to the seven probably eight previous threads on the subject are going to help either.

    I was quite interested as my March-2006 v1 MBP was starting to feel long in it's 32 bit Core 1 Duo tooth. But then it died early this month, and it was replaced it with a current model under AppleCare. :D So now I get the latest model, without the worry that I "bought too soon".

    My wife, OTOH, is in the market for a MacBook, and is annoyed that I'm telling her to wait. I'm not curious what THAT is going to look like, I just want it launched ASAP.

    Ever since early August I have been checking Mac sites every couple of hours to learn as much as I can since this will be my first Mac. The added bonus of this is catching rumors pretty early.

    I'm kind of obsessed to. My RSS reader is pointing to the macrumors news and I'm refreshing it like all the time. The same for the forum here :)

    How in the hell did you get 6GB of RAM in a MBP? I thought 4GB is max?

    Either meant Mac pro with 6GB or MBP with 4GB i'd imagine. Unless there is a very interesting setup...

    Screenshot of your About This Mac window, please. I'm under the impression that you can't access that much.

    I should create a nice little sticky or something. lol. Here's a few posts on my experiences on 6GB on the MacBook Pro (mobile little machine not the huge desktop that I'm too poor to afford).

    I'm obsessed. Me and the girlfriend have been fighting over her POS Dell while I hold out for a "hope" of an Oct 14 release or close-to release. I set google reader on my iPhone and linked iPhoneAlley, TUAW, MacRumors, Appleinsider, and Top news from apple.com. Checking every 30 mind or so. I know sad isn't it? Good little update just came out on SnowLeopard at.... Think it was appleinsider.

    I actually found the 6GB ram to be a great investment.

    I've been checking Mac rumor sites every few minutes for the last 14 years or so. I have dreams about new Apple products. I have had keynote event days where I've had panic attacks because I feel like a horse that knows it's close to the barn and starts getting too excited. And yes, very curious to see the new MacBooks. It's sick that I already feel like I know in my mind what they will look like because I've thought about them so much.

    haha, so real... I find myself checking page 1 about 4-5 times a day from my iPhone now. It's going to be my first mac and I can't wait.
