Well, for the first time in my life, I own a computer that is at the high end of what's available. It's a 2.33 C2D MBP, and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. It's a refurb, but it's obvious that I'm the first owner of it. If I'm not, Apple must have a way of removing any trace of previous ownership, and I'm not talking about the hard drive. I've been slogging my way through the web by using an original Pentium Pro, P3 600, 733 (for over five years) and most recently, an iBook G4. The latter was a step up, but this is like an elevator ride to the top of the Sears Tower. So, I'm glad to join the ranks of MBP owners, and for the first time, I feel like a real Mac owner. Not that I wasn't before, but it feels more authentic now.
