yeah!! got myself a nice new toy. all started out 6 months ago with a 2 year old white macbook. 2.0Ghz intel duo core, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD and dvd burner. lastnight i got a 2.4Ghz intel duo core 2, "black" with 2GB RAM (4GB Max) DL burner support, 240gb HDD, new video card and battery. so so so so so happy. no more spinning wheel. more importantly, i will be able to use Snow Leopard better now when it comes out. just wanted to share my joy. thanks for tuning in.
