    Montreal eh?
    I went to a Canadiens vs Bruins game, and wow, a lot of french was being thrown around. I couldn't keep up. How much french would you say someone would have to know to get along up in Quebec? I'm thinking of moving up there for college. I live in Maine, so it's not much of a distance.

    And to stay relatively on topic, I love my Mac Pro. And when my MBP shows up tomorrow, I'm 97% sure I'll love that too.

    Specifically about my Mac, coming from my old PC? Hmmm...

    I can have 5 whole apps open at once and they don't each take 5 minutes to load! :)

    Systemwide spell check is a great one. I use it a lot. The only thing that bugs me is that my iMac refuses to shut down. :rolleyes:

    When you say college you mean University or Cegep? Whatever which one it is, I personally know people who don't speak french at all and they still get along. Montreal is pretty bilingual (depending on where you go of course). Other cities you might want to understand and speak french. I'd say basic is always useful then the rest will come with practice... Let me know where you go so that we can both go and show off our MBP lol ;)

    Montreal sounds like the place for me. And yes, showing off MBPs sounds like a grand time.

    :apple: forever.
