I get dibs on being the first guy with a new 14" iBook with Superdrive! hehe in all seriousness, this is a GREAT machine. i finally made the switch today with this, and i must say i am very impressed by it. i am so glad i got this. my folks were with me when i got it, and they were wowed by, as my mom said, the "whiteness and cleansiness" of the 'book. Just wanted to also say thanks to everyone for all their opinions and info regarding the books that helped me in my purchasing decision. MR is one of the best communities I've ever posted on.
