Hello everyone. I've been lurking here since July 10th when I placed an order for my new Macbook Pro. It took it a while to make it's way from China, but it finally arrived today. And I think I got a perfect one! I got the SR 2.4 w/ 160GB 7200RPM HDD. I upped the RAM to 2GB, so hopefully I'm OK in that area for a while. This thing is NICE!!! I used Mac OS several years ago, back when System 8 or 9 was out and about. I've got limited experience w/ OsX, but with the BSD backend I already feel at home in the terminal (Linux guy from way back). I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. On a side note, a coworker offered me a 1.25Ghz G4 Mac today (Platinium color) for a price that I couldn't pass up. So now I also have a sharp looking G4 box that I'll probably set up for my wife. Its about time she dumped the old 500Mhz PC she's been using for years, and I'm ready for the whole family to move away from Windows operating systems. Just wanted to say hello to everyone, and thanks for the informative forums here. I've learned a lot just from reading during my wait for the Macbook -- now it's time to put some of that to use. Off to play!
