Well, as few will know, i was expecting an iBook, but then i didnt get it. 2 days ago i went into CompUSA and i saw my first real-life Mac. It was the first time i ever saw a REAL Mac. I used a PowerMac, PowerBook, iMac, and an eMac, i couldnt let go. I thought Windows XP was good, Mac left me in awe, (much like when the guy gets blown out of his couch when he sees color TV.)
They have a cool mouse (Apple Pro Mouse) which is alot better than the mouse im using in Windows. I couldnt believe that i liked and knew how to use Mac after being on Windows for 4 years. :mac:
So, what was it like when you first used Mac?

I've used Macs breifly in school years ago as well as an ex's iMac, but my first real mac usage came just recently when I picked up my iBook. The thing is so easy to use and very logical, almost telepathic. Even though I only have 256MB of RAM, the thing is much quicker then my PC w/ 512MB. I can't wait to have the thing screaming when I max out my RAM @ 1.2GB!

I was 11, in middle school, I had my webpage design class that used Macintosh LC II. We also did hypercard stuff on them.

I went to my sister's school for the parent teacher conference (I was really young and went for the ride). It had to have been about 1988. I had used a Commodore 64 at home all the time and it was nothing but text besides a few games and such. However when my father was in talking to the teacher I went and saw these computers where you clicked on icons and no longer typed to a dir. I was hooked. Sadly I could not afford one as I was about 5 years old. My family went through years of Windows useage since as anyone could tell you as the mid nineties came up Apple was not doing to well. When I turned 16 and got my first job I started saving and bought my first (and still only) PowerMac G4. This is where my real use with a Mac came from but I still remember the Macs that I originally saw.
