    Hey everybody. I just signed for a package that came for my parents and i entered the serial number. it is a new mac book. I was wondering if you guys could explain to me some of the major differences between Windows and OSX Leapord? I opened the box and was playing arround with it when my parents were gone. Thank god for heat guns, i never found a good use for mine before i had to re-shrinkwrap the mac. So any tips or tutorials would help. Thanks.

    i think your parents will figure it out when they turn it on and it's already set up with your name. Bad move, dude.

    Do you know you just committed a 589? Obstruction of the mail service is a pretty serious offense fella!;)

    I'm confused. Do your parents not care that you opened their package, or do they, because you mentioned shrink wrap.

    If they do care, and you're trying to play with something that isn't yours, we can't help you.

    You know if that was a christmas present you just ruined it for yourself.

    When my kids did that when they were younger, I took the thing back to the store and that was one less thing they got. Sounds mean I know but they learned a lesson from it.

    I hope your parents aren't like that and if they are I hope they don't notice.
