And so far it has not been good. So i brought it home, unboxed it and was amazed by the build quality. I almost didnt wanna touch the thing! Haha. I turned it on, did all all the paperwork and finally got into OSX. I just stared for a bit, the screen just looked amazing compared to my GF's crappy HP next to me. I immediately grabbed my camera and transferred all my photos over. It was very quick and fairly simple, and the photos looked absolutely stunning. The next step was transferring my music. I don't have an external hard drive so i threw all my music into my network (took like 1h 30m to transfer) so it finally finished...and heres where the trouble started. I went into itunes and while searching for my folder of music to add, i hit the wrong folder and it added in a bunch of random sound files. So...i deleted them off itunes and at the same time deleted the originals whoops! I was thinking...no big deal ill just go to the trash and restore all those files to their original spots. So i clicked around a bit, and couldn't find it, but being a mac newbie i figured i just missed something and began to search online...THERES NO RESTORE BUTTON!!! But there will be soon in snow leopard (doesnt help me now)...Now theres about 600 sound files sitting in my trash and i dont know where they go. So i decided that ill just reformat, since i didnt know if anything i deleted was important or not. I put in my OSX disc and figured out how to do a clean install...I erase my hard drive and then when i go to do a fresh install, it turns out my disk is too scratched up! I only took the disc out of the package, how is it scratched up already??? Well i guess its back to the apple store for me, to get a new MBP or a new OSX disc...Ahhh it sucks to be a mac newbie. I know this problem was 100% my fault, but it still sucks that i wasted 4-5 hours on this. I really want it to "just work"...hopefully next time i get better results i suppose. I'm really excited to get things going, besides the hiccups, i can't wait to show this bad boy off to my friends and once i figure all this out, i know it will be a great experience. Until then....i guess i'll have to suffer until i learn my way around OSX. P.S. dont flame me for ranting, i love apple products even though this is my first mac computer. I just need some help and get me on my feet towards being a apple "pro"
