    Just to give you a little background on my sheer excitement -- I've finally rundown the behemoth of a computer known as my 17" 1.33GHz PowerBook G4 after 4.5 years.

    The G4 has gone through 4 different versions of OS X - Jaguar, Panther, Tiger and now, Leopard (this will probably be the last OS this computer sees). Aside from the number of OS installations, the G4 has taken a beating like no other - loose hinges, faulty latch mechanism, non-functioning SuperDrive, 17min. battery charge capacity, and produces perfectly fried eggs on its bottom-side while loading videos at CNN.com.

    To say the least - I am more than excited for the arrival of my new 13" 2.2GHz MacBook. 

    Congrats. Bought one a few weeks ago as a second home Mac, 13" 2gb RAM, nice little computer except the screen isn't quite what I was looking for. But it's a lot easier to carry than the 17" MBP that is my main Mac and seems to run a lot cooler.

    It gets marked really easily, I'm not exactly sure how to clean it yet.

    Congrats! I love mine. Its fast, light, has a small footprint, and has a great screen. The screen size might take a bit of work to adjust to for you coming from a 17" screen, but none the less its great. I like mine much better than the 15" MacBook Pro I was using before.

    Congrats on your new purchase. I'm hoping to move from my iBook to my first intel in the coming months. I get excited about owning a brand new Mac. Have fun with your new toy!

    That's pretty sweet. I'm going to see how many OSes I can swing through on my MB before replacing it. So far, still on Tiger. Ideally, I'll switch to the last version of Leopard when 10.6 is released. Enjoy the MB.
