    I'm very disappointed it doesn't mow my lawn, walk my dog, go to work for me... just kidding. I know there were many complaints here lately.

    No this is great. It's my first Mac and this thing is flawless! I love it. Any recommendations for widgets, programs, etc...? Thanks!

    Yeah, I recently got my first Mac and it is flawless too. Guess we all got lucky.

    As for apps, I suggest getting Adium and Growl, in addition to what everyone else said. Have fun with your new machine! :D

    My Macbook pro was also flawless. I'd inspected my very carefully but if you are going to nic pick on everything single little thing, there will never be a absolute perfect mac.

    Crap... I see a hair on my screen. :rolleyes:

    Enjoy your mac. It's a awesome machine.
