    In Sept. 2007 I posted on these forums asking you guys for advice buying my first mac. Leopard still hadn't been released so I decided to wait.

    I played around with osx86 and really liked the OS, but it was so buggy I needed the real thing to really enjoy it.

    Well now that the Macbooks have been updated and Amazon has a $100 rebate I decided to go for it.

    My new 2.4Ghz black macbook will arrive this thursday! I'm also going to stick in 4GB of G.Skill Ram and max it out :)

    ..And this is coming from a life-long windows user, who HATED apple !!!

    I am glad you finally came to the light! Many happy hours Mac-ing to you and congrats - you won't be sorry.

    Remember, no matter what - stay w. the OS. I've seen wanna-converts who have dual systems relapse into Windowdom. The familiar won't teach you the new.

    I still have my XP hooked up. We've spent a lot of time together finding drivers. It was a labor of love.

    Now with my black Mac I finally have time to use the goddamn programs. I don't know anyone with a Mac in my circle of friends, because there are so many haters. I'm so glad I got one.

    I'm a musician and when I plug things in to start a recording and it says "Would you like to use this?". I get a fuzzy feelin.

    In one year I think I had one issue. I can't even remember what it was if that makes you feel better.

    Have fun with it. Do your homework so it will work for your lifestyle.

    Here's a start. http://chris.pirillo.com/2007/11/06/top-100-mac-apps/

    Not sure why you hated apple BUT, I can tell you that after 25 years or so of building and using PC's I switched to a Mac a little over 2 years ago and till today I do not EVER regret doing so!

    In fact just yesterday I got my Macbook Black Refurb and I can tell you that you will LOVE it. Have fun and enjoy your new MacBook! ;)

    It's here!!!! At first I was a bit worried because the amazon box was really banged up and I saw the ups guy just throw it down when he reached my frontdoor, but the apple box was unharmed and everything is PERFECT!!

    I love the simplicity of the macbook its AMAZING!

    I had it up in running in less than 5 minutes.

    I'm typing this from my new macbook right now and I love the feel of the keyboard!

    I just installed firefox -- just drag and drop!? so easy!

    Macbook is blazing fast! and thats with the standard 2GB

    Came with a fujitsu hdd, pretty quiet
