    I cannot believe it only took three days to ship this thing from Singapore to New Jersey.

    I'm beyond thrilled. Got the 24" 3.06, 1T model. I have 4g of ram on order from Crucial which should be here by the end of the week.

    I also have Apple TV on order which should be here this week also. (Refurb)

    Anyway - the screen is stunning, the wireless keyboard is awesome....just as I knew it would be.

    This new setup replaces my 5 year old 15" MacBook. It still works great (aside from the dead battery), but after 5 years I think I deserve a shiney, new iMac.

    I'm over-the-moon right now!

    That's pretty fast.

    Nice specs. That should hold you over for a couple of months :D

    No, seriously, nice system. Sounds like you went all out on your customizing :D

    Yes I think this will last a while. In fact, it has to! This is last big investment Steve is getting out of me for quite a while.

    I think I hear him now rolling around on a bed of cash somewhere.

    Congrats on the new Mac, I am assuming that you meant a PowerBook and not a MacBook, haha. Sounds like you are going to have one kick-ass setup once the 4GB of RAM and :apple:TV arrive.

    Yes, I meant my old PowerBook. Duh on me.

    No I've owned Macs for years - going back to when they were beige boxes. Seems like light-years ago.

    I don't think I'll be posting any pics, since I don't have a nice desk for it, and for the moment, this baby is sitting in the livingroom on my coffeetable.
    One of the perks of not being married! hehe

    Mine arrived yesterday too and this is my first post from my new 24" 3.06ghz 8800GS 500Gb.

    It is truly a beautiful machine! The screen is fine - much to my relief. There is a little dimming in the corners but you really don't notice it.

    Just finding it weird moving from Windows to Mac. Lots of things are slightly different but I think it'll get easier soon.

    Was this from original purchase date?

    If so, I really have something to look forward to. I was originally just going to get a base version for the apple store but if it's only 3 days, I can wait.

    Yes it arrived 3 days from the order date. I think the trick is to make sure you order early in the morning, considering the order is processed in California. Also don't order on a Friday, since it could get tied up over the weekend.

    Good luck!

    What were you doing with a Macbook 5 years ago?! And 15" too! If only I were so fortunate! :eek: You sly dog you :p.
