    Thanks for posting this. It's really whet my appetite for the BlackBook I'm going to buy in a few months.

    I especially like how he says the Mac Pro is so quiet that you can play music softly without having to compete with the sound of roaring fans coming from the computer. That sort of thought put into engineering will be an improvement for me over the loud PC I have now. :rolleyes:

    There are so many First Impressions stories out there, and so many questions here about how to maximize or make something work like it does on Windows, that I've become tired of the whole thing. It seemed to me that, at this late date, switching is no longer a novelty or newsworthy.

    This story reminded that there are still people out there for whom Macs are mysterious and scary. As others have posted, it is always a pleasure to re-experience the liberation and joy that comes from switching through the eyes of a new user.

    Yeah, I thought he did a good job with the writeup. Reminds me fondly of my own experience years ago. :)
