    One more question, as the MBP is coming tommorow (yay). Should I do the unboxing and review in seperate videos? Should I unbox all the products in one video? Anything that you will like to know? Do you want benchmarks? Where can I do that? Any comments would help.

    My youtube name is ran981248, but there is nothing that you would want to see there yet.



    One more thing, some one has asked me about the sounds. Well I will tell you. At this point, the loudest thing I notice is the dvd drive. It makes a zzzz sound when I awake it from sleeping. Thats about it at this point. But I haven't run any intensive things yet.

    (Im putting it on a coolermaster cooler, it increases the height but now I am starting to feel the sharp edges when typing)

    Some pics to keep you guys interested. First pic is the stuff I got for this monster. The second pic is my temporary workstation. The MBP has a bigger screen than my desktop. This thing's a monster! By the way, the carrot is a cushion a friend gave me. It is really useful now because it protects me from the sharp edges of the notebook.

    Wish me luck on the vids:D

    Er yeah, and I am still using office 2000 on that. Its my torrent computer. I "get" what I need from the internet from this pc. And unfotunately there is often viruses. I don't want viruses hanging around my fast computer, the MBP (in fact, the fastest computer in the house)

    Cmon don't be windowsphobic. Remember, it Vista that generated the most outrage. Even I don't like it.

    I fully agree. You posted this topic quite a while ago, and you have
    not delivered anything yet. Why shout when you have nothing to say?

    regards, 
