01-18-2005, 05:48 AM #1JordanGuestFinally did it - new iBook owner!
Just wanted to thank everyone for their great pre-purchase advice. I have decided to give Apple a try and just yesterday put my order in for a 12 inch iBook with 60 gig HD, 768 RAM, and AppleCare.
Just after I read a rumour about an iBook G5 coming out this year. I hope this is B.S. as I will be one grumpy Canadian if it turns out to be true!
Also, since I don't know squat about OS X can anyone suggest a good book to purchase that will walk me through the iBook and the OS?

Congrats on you new Mac i hope to be getting one later this year :cool:
I don't think they will introduce the G5 powerbook for some time nevermind iBook.
Also i have the missing Manual by O' reilly and is well a manual for OSX
that tells you everything you need to know about OSX

Congrats, the g5's rumors, are just that, rumors. Some say apple is having a tough time getting a g5 into a notebook, but noone knows for sure. As far as books, I got myself a copy of "mac OSX for dummies" Its a pretty good book and for those of us with very little knowledge of technical jargoon its nice because it speaks in plain english.

I purchased practically the same iBook as you. People always think the 12' iBook is too small, to me it's a space saver and in my opoinioin the screen is pretty big. The only instructions I needed for the whgole laptop wee about the controls. The programs gave me instruction by themselves. Welcome to the small, but POWERFUL Mac family! :cool:

yeah, when i show my 12 iBook to people they always say its too small but "cool" so whatever. I take it 15" is the norm for PC Laptops but to me that can be too big for a laptop but then again nice.

anyway, i'm getting my first mac ever, an ibook, hopefully tonight, assuming my tax return is what i think it is... i'm going for the 12" with 256mb ram and 30gb (because i can get ram so cheap through work, i'm going to go for some Kingston ram aftermarket for it, good brand).
great forum by the way!
