    Hi, again! So, it's here, my middle-grade Macbook. This time I thought ahead and purchased an iSkin for the keyboard - my iBook G4 ended up pretty gross . :rolleyes:

    Well, I am very happy with the display. The glossy screen isn't as noticeable [esp. while on] as I was scared it would be. The extra inch [coming from the iBook 12"] is yum. I really feel as though I am looking at a much larger screen than I am. And the screen itself seems to be held much nicer - does that make sense?

    Overall, the design is pretty boring. I think my G4 was a little more flashy. The keys all spread apart is going to take some time to get used to. Yuck, and I haaaate the charger. It took me like 20 minutes and a google search to some random guys how-to on using the extension.

    And the worst part so far is the grooves around where my wrists lay on it. Anyone else have that problem? It sorta hurts, bleck.

    Does anyone think the Macbook is less than floss? I like that it's sleeker, but blah. I'm going to need to girl it up. Anyone know of any place that sells protective skins or decals for the entire white MacBook?

    Oh, and having a camera is nice. Now I can be a YouTube or smut star. I keed.

    Oh, my other question is one that I asked in my first post - but I'm not sure I understood the answers given. Anyway, I want the music from my Nano and iPod Mini onto my new iTunes library. Is that possible? My iBook isn't starting at all today, but I may be able to get a minute or two alone again with it.

    I heard Ethernet [?] cable- which, I don't have, but could get. I just want to avoid my iBook if possible as I have to shake and toss it around for it to get the motor [or whatever] running.

    Haha. So that's my little post. Yay, I'm glad to have a new computer. Thanks for reading my very ditsy post.

    <3 Katey.

    Eh, well the charger wasn't just adding the extension was a little past my comprehension skills. It wasn't hard itself, just trying to understand the wording, so to say.

    Don't shake the computer, you might damage the HD. If you can't turn it on, have someone take the HD out and save all your info in your iPod, and then transfer it to your new Mac.

    See this thread. They discuss about some pads for the MB, which help if you find the case to hurt your wrists.

    Thats really not nice to say to someone who just got a new machine. The excitement factor in getting something new like that should be relished even if it isn't exactly what you would have or want. Anyhow I am always happy for people when they get new stuff like that, so I say congrats to the OP on their new computer.

    Sorry, I thought this was the MacBook forum as well, oh wait it is. And nothing is ever to cheap for some struggling with rent, food money, and student loans.

    That is a completely un-called for comment. iKatey was nice enough to post about her new MacBook and you have to come around with boorish comment like this. I think you owe the lady an apology!

    iKatie - I'm a new MacBook owner myself and I'm loving it. It has a very simple design but it's simplicity makes it beautiful (ok, that was lame).

    I've also heard some complaints about the "sharp" edges, but it doesn't bother me. I guess when I type (as I watch myself right now), my wrists do not lean on the laptop much.

    Anyway, enjoy your new purchase!

    @ iKatie - Nice post. You give me something to consider about my upcoming purchase by posting a honest review of your new macbook. Even it's a mac, there's always something to desire ;) But I'm sure you'll love your new machine. Make great work on it! :)

    @ SavageLLama77 - It's not uncommon that some people (mostly guys...?) try to compensate their lack of confidence by boosting their gear. (at least... what can be bought in shop's ;)) I hope you learn from the reactions in this thread.
