Well I was lucky enough to get a 2.4 Alu Macbook for Christmas. I asked for it kind of half joking but sure enough here I sit typing on it. First impression is wow! I spent plenty of time researching and reading up on the forums. I managed to get a good macbook with the only flaw (very small) is a lose battery cover. Its barely loose so I can live with it. I have spent quite a bit of time on it today and I am very impressed. I wont bore you with all the details but needless to say I am very pleased with it! Glad to be part of the Mac community! P.S. As I am sure most of the people on this board are in to gadgets like me I must give a thumbs up to the Logitech Harmony remote. My wife got me one and its really cool as well!
