I did the exact same thing you did. It feels great doesn't it? It will feel even better when you get it. I just saved up and bought RAM for mine too. It should arrive today! Its a 1GB stick for <$200; here is a link for the one I got - http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Samsung/27SAMSO1GB/

All I want to get now is a cheap LCD for it for when I'm working at home on my desk.

Thats fantastic! I think I've finally talked myself OUT of waiting for the iBook update, and INTO buying a powerbook. With the EDU discount and the 100USD rebate, it's really not so bad...except for Applecare...

I just recieved my 12" last week. It is awesome. I got an airport express as well, now I am not confined to one room. The 12" pboo, is just stunning. I can't count how many compliments I have recieved since then. Have fun with it.

I thought Hyundai made cars....interesting!! I got a 19" Acer LCD from Pricegrabber for about $250, 1280x1024 resolution, it's plenty big. It is more money, but it is bigger.....

The 12" is the bomb, I LOVE MINE. The size is perfect, the power is Apple...can't say enough about them, it's a terrific Powerbook, you'll never ever look back.

Good decision. A two-month wait is long enough for me. When you have a need to replace a broken laptop, there's no better reason. I had a 15" Fujitsu laptop. I don't miss the less screen space at all thanks to Exposè.

The only thing I do miss is my old games that runs only on Windows. I suppose I can have someone build me a gaming tower for that purpose. I'm having fun with computers all over again thanks to Apple.

I also recommend the memory upgrade. Got 1gb module from crucial.com
with a small rebate coupon and free shipping. Bought powerbook for simply
the Mac OS X experience; well, mainly iTunes, GarageBand and Logic Pro.

Aloha and have fun.

If you can, post the box opening ceremony. For some reason, I always love see them.

Awesome, congratulations! I bought my 12" Powerbook more than two years ago, and it continues to serve me well, seeing more use than any of my other computers. Even though Rev B came out right after my purchase, I have never regretted buying at the moment I did. Hope your 12" PB brings you as much productivity and fun as mine has to me.
