I've been a PC guy for a long time, about 3 years ago a friend of mine made me take a really good look at macs and after I did, I had to get one. I ended up getting an iBook, which I still have. However I still use my PC for a lot of stuff. I work in IT and I use and fix PCs all day and honestly it was nice to come home and use something different sometimes.

I noticed the Core 2 Duos just came out for the MBPs and I saw the refurbished Core Duos just got cheaper so I decided to go for it!

I am finally replacing my Desktop PC with a MBP.

This is what I got:

Refurbished MacBook Pro, 15-inch Glossy Display, 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo
15.4-inch glossy widescreen display (1440x900 resolution)
1GB (single SODIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
100GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive
Slot-load SuperDrive (DVDRW/CD-RW)
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory
Built-in iSight Camera
Front Row and Apple Remote

For $1,599.00 I think its a pretty good deal.

I am very psyched, Ive always wanted a powerbook/macbook pro.

I also do a lot of work on the side fixing PCs and there has been several times Ive used my iBook onsite to fix PCs (recover files and that type of stuff) I love how people give me strange looks and say Your using a mac to fix my PC?

It should be here Thursday and I cannot wait!

Once you go Mac, you'll never go back.
