Earlier today I came home from errands to find my iBook sitting there, a day early. Needless to say it didn't take me long to get it out of the box. I am still impressed with just how small this thing is overall, it is just the right size for me and the weight is nice, too. After using it for a while I found the battery life quite impressive despite using WiFi and the optical drive a bit. The keyboard could have a bit more travel and I still keep hitting wrong keys but I am getting used to it. The trackpad is a bit annoying, but I'm not a fan of trackpads in general and would much prefer a trackball but of course they aren't going to reappear in laptops any day soon. MacOS X is quite a change for me versus the old System 7. Some things were familiar but at times I just found it better to forget what I remember from System 7 and just relearn how to do it in OS X. Setup of wireless networking, a shared printer, and shared folder went very smoothly. I was happy to find that Opera 8 for OS X works almost the same as the Windows version so that brought something familiar to here. I wouldn't have minded Safari except its idea of maximize seemed to be to stretch to 2/3 the width of the screen and it didn't have a popup blocker, and I just preferred Opera anyway. Adium works a lot like Gaim so that was easy enough to get used to. Overall I'm liking this thing quite a lot so far. I don't know if it will replace my desktop PC but it sure compliments it well. It is doing what I hoped it would do very well and I'm glad I decided to go with it over a similarly-priced Windows laptop since I would have had to give up size, battery life, and/or usability if I had.
