Hey everybody, I have been reading these forums for a while now, and have decided after making the plunge into getting both the iPhone and the new MacBook to actually post something. I got the new aluminum MacBook yesterday, and have not been able to put this thing down! I was worried going into this big purchase, a lot of which had stemmed from reading posts on here like "the screen sucks" or "macbook random crashes". But i have to say, the screen is a vast improvement over my previous 17inch Dell laptop. The MacBook screen is awesome IMO. I also thought i might regret getting a 13inch laptop because it would be small, but it really isn't at all. This computer is perfect size for me, I was already able to watch a movie on it, and use this same machine to take notes on in class (i'm in college) with out being unnecessarily obtrusive on the desk. This computer can do it all! The multi-touch pad is still continuing to surprise me, i was surfing the web and the text just got bigger on me, and then i realized i could do the same gestures i use on the iPhone to increase the text. The three finger and four gestures are so easy and intuitive. The trackpad is way beyond any computer i have ever used... it's awesome!! The keyboard on this thing types like a dream, and i was able to change the layout on it real easily (it was confusing on windows to change the layout of the keyboard, only some applications would recognize the switch, sometimes it wouldn't work.. etc). I also had to opt for the backlight keys, and am not ashamed to say that it was worth the +$300 for it. Even though it has only been a day i can't really see this getting old, this computer is my first mac, and i don't think i will ever have any reason to look back again! Also, if you are still reading.. I know there have been many threads solely on this subject.. but what should i do first? I have already calibrated the battery (4:58 left right now!!) and have synced my iPhone and got gmail to sync with iCal and Address Book.. so any advice on what's next would be welcomed!!
