Well.

About a year and a half ago, I started getting an itch to buy a Mac. After reading about the Mac from the creation of Apple to OS X, watching every JobsNote available (thank you YouTube), reading iCon and a few other things about Apple I figured I have done enough research to make the switch...

Last night I walked in to the Apple store in Annapolis, MD and picked up my first Mac :mac: . (Along with a new 30 Gig iPod and scanner/printer.) So I wanted to share pictures and thank you for having a great resource like Mac-Forums to come to!

Out with the old!:::



and IN WITH THE NEW!!!:::






Thanks for looking!

Grrrr, I'm annoyed mine will be another 12 days now

Looks very nice though!

It seems that everyone has their iMac straight infront of the keyboard, and not to the side from what I've seen.

Is this the norm?

I like the uniformity of that, plus it seems a little more natural to me. Like youre pointing at it and controlling it.....or I guess its Commanding now, huh?

I really love them. I dont have a giant room to fill with sound where my computer is, so these provide plenty of sound with great deep bass.

Very nice. I've never been to the annapolis store. I'm in Greenbelt but I usually go to the Bethesda store as I'm from Montgomery County (just in Greenbelt since I go to UMD).

Im in love.....

The Dell is running the best (imo) OS X emulator, Fly-a-kite OSX found at portraitofakite.com. It is by far the best and easiest way to get XP looking like X. It really is beautiful.

It is how I meeked by with out the actual OS X for the last year or so.

The Nano is currently plugged into a iTone...its a pretty nice little clock radio with remote and plugs in to all different ipods. The silver one didnt look as good.

gort---go terps!
