Hi all! I took the plunge, and decided to ditch my Dell desktop. I ordered the base MacBook Pro 15.4" 2.4GHz after several days of research. Even though, I will mostly do basic stuff, I prefer having the large screen as opposed to the MacBook. I also like having the flexibility to use more intensive applications, should I need to. This MBP should serve me well for quite some time. I am looking forward to learning from these forums, as I am a complete novice to Apple products. I can't wait until tomorrow!
