    Ordered my first Macbook(Mid 2010) off of the Apple store and received it last week.

    Gratz, I love my MacBook too, I've had mine since 2006 without any major problems (except battery replacement under warranty). Overall great and sturdy little computers. Max out your ram and throw in a SSD later on down the road!:)
