This is my first Mac, and my first post on this forum. While I learned about computers on a IIe and a IIgs, they belonged to schools and friends, this is the first Apple computer that is truly mine. This little aluminum box has replaced my prehistoric gateway pentium II desktop. I kept that desktop alive way way past it's born on date. This beautiful little jewel is pure joy. In the two months of ownership, I've had nothing go wrong. It just plain works. It does what I want with little ado. The learning curve was a little steep, but not too terribly daunting. It's fit and finish are nothing short of amazing. Being a toolmaker by trade, I machine aluminum on an almost daily basis, so I really appreciate the fine workmanship. The little holes for the speaker grills, still to this day amaze me. My new Macbook pro has become "my precious" and probably will maintain that status for years to come. Just thought I'd share. My name is Tom and I'm now a Mac.
