Here it is, our new addition!

I just couldn't wait until Monday, so on our Saturday morning of errands we zipped down to FedEx's distribution center and picked it up.

There is still a lot to learn.  It's just different enough from my Dell to make a few things frustrating, but I can already tell how some things are going to be so much easier.

What made me change loyalties?  I was never unhappy with my Dell, but I was never thrilled with it either.  I've heard so from so many people who clearly love their Macs for various reasons that I thought I'd make the switch and see what I thought.  

Anyway, here I sit with a pretty zippy little MacBook which, I don't end up loving for its performance (which I think I will), I'll sure end up loving how cute and compact it is.

Excuse any errors as I get used to the new machine (which I'm composing this post on-- we'll see how it looks!).

Have fun with it! I'm a bit jealous, but still have almost a year to go on my Dell's "extended warranty" period (covers practically everything, including throwing it across the room). Then we'll see...

Not that I really know what any of this means but my specs are:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo

Operating system: Mac OS X Leopard

RAM: 4GB but, apparently, it's a double layer drive (whatever that means) and each have 2GB

Hard drive: 250 GB

Perhaps you can give me a tutorial on what all that means and if it's good or bad. :)

Looks very good indeed.

Be sure to find a windows emulator so you can run all of your favorite games and applications.

now you're officially cool. i'm terribly jealous. you know we're in the market 4 a laptop, and i'd go mac in a heartbeat, but my photoshop is on my windows platform, so i believe i'm stuck.

it's me, Val said...

TF, you're right, you are stuck. That's hands down the worst thing about "going Mac". Congrats to you, Cait! You have the same book that I have. You'll love if you already don't. You seriously will never "go back". Congratulations!!!
