    I ordered a new 2.5 Macbook Pro on the day it released. It was supposed to be here either Wednesday according to FedEx or Tuesday according to Apple. To my surprise I thought I would check to see the status of its whereabouts. To my surprise it was showing it was already delivered.

    I am typing on it right now. My first!

    Upgraded from a 2001 Sony Vaio running XP. It had a 900 MHz AMD Duron Processor with 256 MB of RAM.

    I couldn't even do the geekbench test on the old computer because the minimum requirements to test is 512 MB of RAM.

    My old hard drive was a whopping 20 GB. My new one is a tad bit bigger :D

    Hope everyone who ordered is having their new books showing up today! Enjoy!

    Congrats I got mine in the mail on Thursday after ordering on release day with standard shipping. I couldn't believe it go here so fast either. I love the new machine.

    The trackpad is a great addition and I can't wait for future uses that Apple will put into programs. The 3 finger swipe is great for going forward and back in Safari.

    Its not bad. Sometimes it seems to stutter. Comparing it to my old trackpad is a world of difference. Having the three finger back gesture is a huge help as well as the two finger scroll.

    I am glad that I got the new one for this additional feature.

    I have been busy adding photos to iPhoto. Only up to about five thousand but already I have been super impressed with the speed and ease of doing so.

    Finally getting organized!

    Oh and the lighted key pad is awesome.
