    Hi all!

    I ordered my first Mac today. After much research about the refurbs i ordered a reburbished aluminum macbook today! I can't wait!

    I have some mac experience through a video game design class that i took... it required me to use one since there were no pc's... but i don't have much.

    Anyway, I'm well aware there is a search function as I've been spying around for awhile. I'll try to keep the newbie questions to a minimum. It should be here Monday and I can't wait! I also ordered a 16gb ipod touch as i feel its time to upgrade from my 30gb classic and i bought a last gen shuffle for my daughter...

    Anyway, great forum... glad I found the place!

    Chris

    Congrats, I just got my Aluminum MacBook about 2 weeks ago and I love it. I got the 2.4GHz model and upgraded it to 4GB of RAM (very simple btw). This is quicker than any PC I've ever had and you gotta love Leopard, I haven't went back to Windows since I bought my Mac Mini back in January.

    thanks, I just got the 13" 2.0Ghz model. I do have intentions to upgrade to 4gm of ram and a larger hard drive.

    Mind if i ask what you got and where?

    I've thought about getting this...

    It came! It was waiting on me when i came home from work!

    She's a beauty!

    Got her all setup and am doing updates while it charges...

    Had a little bit of a hassle getting it connected to my home network but managed to get that squared away...
