    Hello Everyone,. This is my First post. I have been a longtime surfer on this website. However I just received my Brand New Macbook Pro.... (Base) 2.4Ghz... So I thought it would only be fitting to finally join this forum community. :)
    I would first like to say how much I love this computer.. ....(only after 24 hours)..It is beyond words. **Awesome. ***
    In addition, there were many negative things written about the Pro..over the mths I read this site....But I would like to thank all those people who wrote positive things about the macbook pro......because after receiving mine I can see thus far it really is a great computer. :)
    I am also glad I did not wait for the next gen pro. as I see many ppl on here trying to do. If you need a computer. get it. ** Don't wait!!! Anyways , I just wanted to say my formal hello. and how much I love this comp.
    Take Care----
    Purchased in Delaware---Great Store(NO TAX)!!!

    Congrats on your new MBP. The reason why you only see negative things on this site is because the happy people stay away. Any tiny little problem will be magnified on here. Enjoy your new laptop. I have a 2.4 and love it.

    New MacBook Pro

    In common with JNewtonMac, I too, have been a surfer on this site for a while, and have become a switcher only recently, when I treated myself to a MBP as a slightly belated birthday present in April. It is a beautiful machine, fast, powerful and elegant with a superb screen; of course, the exquisite aesthetics appeal, but the very good support I received from Apple when my iPod died within warranty two years earlier and was replaced without fuss, also impressed me. I love the MBP and have admired the elegant design and ease of use of Apple products since acquiring my (first) iPod.

    Cheers and good luck.
    :apple: MBP 15.4", 2.4 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, 160 HDD
    :apple: iPod Classic 30 GB

    Do you mean Kool Aid in reference to the Jonestown thing, or just something that aids in your coolness? By the way, did you know that they didn't actually drink Kool Aid in the Jonestown suicides? Common misconception. It was actually Flavor Aid, which is either a cheap knock-off or just plain old ghetto Kool Aid. Kind of random, I'm just saying.

    Congrats and welcome as well. I to am a happy MBP user so maybe we need some more positive comments to help encourage others.

    Mine may have had issues but Apple have replaced everything that has broken, and now its 100%

    Enjoy.
