    Hey guys, hit up this forum a bunch of times but never joined out of laziness. I bought my MBP last december and it rocks. This is the first mac I've owned but I've used a lot of different macs before. So, just wanted to introduce myself. Also couldnt find what thread/forum section this would go under... :-/

    Welcome...... It's GREAT having you... I think you will soon learn that somehow Apple has the computing scene figured out..... I mean how many times do you look at a PC and wonder if only it could do that; trust me, it probably is already there with the Mac....

    Welcome Aboard, I hope we all continue to learn from the more experienced to enjoy the journey

    Congrats OP! Macs are addicting. I switched almost three years ago. A macbook pro was my first, then I bought another, then I got a mac pro, and a Macbook air, I love all of my macs :)

    To be honest, the biggest reason why I bought a MBP and switch from Windoze is VMWare Fusion. The idea of running windows virtually as opposed to boot camp...pure genius. I had a Sony Vaio notebook, video card burned out. I have some ubuntu, fedora experience (was fun but time consuming) as well, so macs just filled the void perfectly.

    Now if only Apple can burn blu-rays, would decimate all, but I think blu-ray is in bed with the PC manufacturers.

    My iphone 3g craps the bed all the time. My MBP needs a new battery/power cable i think. Sometimes the charger says not charging or the light doesnt come on. And sometimes if the cable gets disconnected, the comp shuts down :-(

    Awesome! You will be hooked now! Since getting my first mac (also a 15" MBP), I've also bought an iMac and a MacBook air (not to mention an ipod touch and ipad!). Welcome to the forum! [​IMG]
