Well, my shiny new box shipped yesterday from Netherlands. Nothing shows up on the tracker yet though.
I've spent a little time preparing for the switch. My current laptop is the one I use at work (one of the reasons for the iBook purchase is that I want to minimize non-work-related usage of the Dell Latitude I have from work). So I've been backing up mail, my private Java and Ruby code, bookmarks, etc etc. Also compiled lists of what software or its OS X equivalent I need on the Mac (virtual desktops, ftp client, etc etc).
Found a good book for my situation, too: "Mac OS X for Unix Geeks". Good to know what's different from Linux\Solaris\BSD.
Anyway, my earlobes are tingling with excitement over my imminent switch.
EDIT: Bah, now it does show up on the tracking page.. and it's shipping from Shanghai, not Netherlands. I suppose I'm in for a bit of a wait then.
