Aside from that, just drag the bottom corner to make it larger.

duh... lol

I should have known to resize... but in my defence all the excitement of having the Gorgeous Work Of Art in front of me, I just couldn't think straight.

Talking about thinking straight I just blew off work so I can wait for my MAC.

Hope am not in trouble. OH WELL LMAO

Let me just tell you....

You'll be addicted
It just works so flawlessly its just amazing.
I already downloaded Skype and MSN (YUCK) Skype is great, but MSN isn't all that.

Man this is one heck of a robust software, works so fast and responsive its just amazing how I was blinded by windows for so darn long. doesn't matter how many apps are open they just all seem to work with no issues and no speed reduction.

And the Mail software is awesome, I was amazed at how easy was it to set it up to retrive my gmail account in just 1 minute flat.

I have to say this is one of my best decisions for the YEAR so far.

MAC is the way to go, and there is no turning back for me

If you want to use MSN, I suggest you check out Adium. MUCH better for instant messaging than MSN's own software.

And congrats on the Macbook. You'll be losing sleep for at least a week since you'll be up all night tinkering with it. It'll be one fun week though :black:

I will post pictures later on today I promise.

And Kash, you are right, like mentioned before I already blew off work this morning so that I can endulge on the Macbook.

I was looking at Adium by the way, the only reason I wanted MSN was for Video Conferencing with Family Overseas, but since that isn't available on Adium either, at least not that they mentioned it on their website, Skype is actually the way to go.

The only bad thing I see so far, is that the Adapter for an external monitor came way too short, and I will need a male to male adapter to hook it up to my 19" monitor. But thats no big deal.

I still LOVE MY MACBOOK... and did I mention that the Black looks GORGEOUS.

You can am excited can't ya lol.

I mentioned Adium just for text-based messaging. For video, I'll agree that Skype is the way to go.

Also, the adapter was designed to be that short. It's just an adapter, you're supposed to provide the cable yourself. This is especially the case for people who already have the cabling in place, such as with projectors, and just want to plug the laptop in. It also lets you choose your own length, which is something many manufacturers have been doing lately to cut costs on their end. No point in giving a 6 foot cable when a significant percent of your customers need 9 foot cables.

You are rite on the Money Kash.

No I am not really complaining about it. Like am telling you I couldn't be happier having the Mac Book in front of me finally

By the way, this is one Kickin' Track Pad, its just amazing how using to fingers to scroll and to pull up the secondry menu, ie the Right Click. I always hated the Track Pad on my work Laptop (Windows), but this one just feels so right to use and makes like easier and less clustered.

Oh One question.

I was trying to pair the Macbook with My Bluetooth headset to use for Skype. but even tho the Macbook does detect it and it connects to it, I can't use it, no sound comes through for some reason. any suggestions.

Its a Jabra BT500.

Let me know what you think.

On the MSN thing, if you absolutely have to use MSN and need Video while doing so, there is AMsn. It does video over MSN.
