The day arrived last night when I placed the order for my first ever Mac on Apple.com! Soooo excited right now, I can hardly contain my happiness! A nice new 3.06 24 incher will be arriving sometime next week. Thanks for all the advice you guys post here every day, it's really helped me learn important tips and concerns about using a Mac. woot! Also, I picked up a lot of software (Office 2008, VMWare, Photoshop CS3, much more) for very cheap () and got myself an AirPort Extreme off of eBay.
