    Hello!
    I've been asking questions on things such as, which MacBook to get, what case to get, etc. I am very pleased to say I got the 2.4GHz aluminum MacBook! The Apple rep at Best Buy was very helpful and I ended up getting an incase sleeve and a Targus bag that is big enough to hold my macbook in it's sleeve and a few text books.
    Just thought I'd say thanks to all of you here that helped me. I'd also like to add that I am by no means a switcher, nor do I think I will ever stop using Windows, but I must say I prefer the Mac already.
    Thanks for all the help and I'll see you all around the forums!
    Garrett :D

    You say that now. ;) Windows is a fine operating system. I appreciate OSX for the stability and security, but I have Vista on my PC and like it well enough as well. But I'd still rather have an OSX system. :D

    Thank God they're doing something right. The Best Buy's out where I live don't have any Apple kiosks, and even if they do, there's no Apple rep hired to work there.

    Glad they helped you out though! Awesome!

    Isn't that the truth!

    That was probably the best purchase of your life FYI.

    Congrats! I also bought the 2.4 on Saturday! I really love it. My first mac was a whitebook and I thought I was in love with that. This one, however, definitely takes the cake. :cool:
