    Just wanted to say hi to everyone, I just got my new Macbook. I will open it when my son takes a nap (hopefully a long nap). This is my first Mac so I will probably have a lot of questions this week. Reading this website really helped me make my choice, thanks.

    But I think whatever he did or would have done to the HP would be in good interest of his mother!:p (protecting her from 'Win'):p

    I probably will give it to him to play with. You spend top dollar for a PC and a year later it's worthless. I am so happy I changed, and the MB isn't even out of the box yet.

    I got my son on a computer at age 4 and now, at 19, he makes over $100,000/yr selling web space and designing web sites.

    You'll find that your new MacBook purchase will last way more than a year. Mine is over 2 and it runs as good if not better than the day I got it.
